If it maxes out if it's too big/windy, and nothing's working around the back of the island, then I'll scope out bass coast, or hit the road for bells etc.

I can recall a conversation with Al Byrne, where he called bullshit on the myth that channel bottoms only go well in good surf.

Never did get to ask him about 2 foot closeouts. Then again, AB surfed t-gun more often than not and it is one of the coasts more consistent straighthanders.

Have you surfed these waves much, how do you rate them? They are all onshore with any westerly in the wind.
