Evaluation

*Average:    3.68
If you want a fantastic reef, don't come here. Actually, if you want anything except for seafood, don't come here. I dive here for food only. I don't use tanks, but free diving this spot means that you won't scare the fish. The best part about this spot is the Uhu. The only other place you will find this much Uhu is way up on the North Shore, and that's a long drive. Spineys are good here, too, in season and not. Check the surf report, but it's usually flat enough for a surface swimmer to have no probs if they don't mind swimming through some surf to get out. On another note, there have been reports of break-ins at this site. I'm there almost every day (sweet shore break if you're into bodysurfing) and I've never had anyone steal anything from me or my car. Petty theft occasionally happens, but don't let that ruin your dive; just keep important stuff at home or on you.
