PAULEE from Australia
“Swanny: You need heaps of S/W swell 20knot S/W breeze mid to low tide and a little bit of swell, good novelty wave in summer when all you are hanging out for is the above mentioned conditions, as there is no swell most of the time!

Worth a look after a really big storm when things settle down and go offshore.

Those in the know have had some good short, intense little suck out waves!”
