Swell sizes range between 1 – 3 m/3 – 9 ft, however, to get the best waves, one might need to go a further 15 m/49 ft from the normal sized waves break.
The rips are not very strong, therefore one needs to be careful unless you find yourself further than you intended to go.

Sea weeds are also a minor setback one needs to be cautious about.
