About Supertubes (Cactus)

On the other side of the small peninsula are two other board-breaking, shallow reefs. Supertubes is the right, in deference to it's South African namesake, so fast, tubular tight envelopes are the go. It breaks a fair way out, but length of ride is much shorter than the SA equivalent. Only breaks at low, which is strange considering how shallow it is. More W in the swell will take the edge off it.

Gets increasingly crowded when on and the small tide window condenses the crowd further.
