There are a few selection of easier waves (than the rest of the West coast beaches) to choose from that can go from one to five feet high. It also features it’s famous Point Break on the right side of the bay, in front of the fishing harbour, that can produce a long and powerful barrelling right, the can span from four to twelve feet high. This wave is only for expert surfers.
