South Bay is an excellent longboarding wave. With long rolling peaks. It is a busy beach at the weekends with a great surf shop on the cliff. It usually picks up a little less swell than Cayton or North Bay.
What a mellow break! It is always bigger than South Bay with a better choice of peaks and a good bunch of local lads always ready for a bit of banter. Watch out for the kelp and the seals, nasty little buggers when thay want to be!
The place to go when there is a northerly swell and the north winds mess everywhere else. The problem is that everybody knows it too, so be prepared for some drop in action from just about every form of buoyancy aid known to man. Check out the sinister subterranean parking lot too!
