A classic right-hand point break. Late drop on ledgy take off with some fast sections down the line, challenging even for the well-experienced. Handles plenty of size. Winki Pop can connect through to Fairy Bower on better swells. Winki sucks hard in front of the cliffs. Take off quickly into a short ledging barrel and look for the exit or continue into Fairy Bower offering long powerful walls perfect for turns and lip bashing. Keep an eye out for the occasional rock that can pop up on the inside! A decent ride here can be over 100m. Also fun on a longboard on smaller days.
