Storm from South Africa
“Also known as "Yo-Yo's" this is a awesome single peak in the darkish winter waters of the Westcoast. Great right hand in the 4-6ft range and can be very fun on a longboard at this size. Lefts are more shorter and alot faster. If you looking for classic westcoast barrels this is not the spot, more of a soul carving hang 10 kinda wave. Line yourself up with the churches steeple out in the lineup to be in the perfect take off spot when those sets come through, and charge!”
