Surfer's Point

Surfer's Point is a popular spot not only for surfing, but for a number of other water sports such as kayaking, waking boarding kitesurfing, and windsurfing. The surf can be rough, so it is not recommended for novice swimmers, but park benches make it easy to watch as others take on the risk.
