Barnicles - Take care on the submerged boulders on entry/exit. Barnically encrusted, seen a dude face plant, claret central...ouch

Day trip - Magnet is a primo day trip- naturally wait for a big phat south swell which curls round banks p and misses chch alltogether. early morning and at the low tide coming in usually is best, be friendly and keep it clean guys n girls- also overthe hill at tumbledown can be good for the learners (nice sandy beach to). ps the farmer is a legend for giving pretty good access to the beach!!
