 Additional Information

This is probably the best wave inside the actual bay that picks up the most swell, though usually it will still obviously be smaller than along the coast. This is where the the most swell reaches inside. Ive surfed it 5foot once, best in winter clean groundswell. Its a fairly shallow righthand sandbar setup. The best place inside the bay when the others along the coast are outtve control or blown out.
