“Bit confused with ratings as this place is good. Surf here provided me one of the best days Ive had. The main beach is heavy & hollow wave at times and if its a little to big you can surf the rivermouth which has a great double spread pic in stormrider guide. Trust me if u get this on a good day, your legs will burn the waves are so long.
Bad points... dirty beaches, but who cares.”
