Jimmy from Australia
“Morna, or Birubi as it is correctly known, works on a northeast wind, which occurs in summer, not winter, in this area.
It can work from knee high dribblers to double overhead, lefts and rights, but the left off the point is the racetrack on the right day.

If it is on, it's a prick to paddle out.

Morna Point is actually at another spot, which does not get ridable surf.”
