 Additional Information

Classic spot when on. Needs a medium to big clean WSW swell pushing in to turn on properly, 5-8foot and light offshore. Paddle in from the beach cause its a mission from the rocks when big. Pretty gnarley and heavy wave when on with some good barrels. Rights and lefts, though the lefts work better on SW.
