Description: 

Rolling Stones is a right hand point break on a stoney/rocky beach, named because of the sound of rolling stones when the waves wash in and out. The wave is solid and powerful, with a steep, fast drop in, and hollow barrels on offer. Needs a big swell to get it working. Leave this one to the experts.
