it is on a huge farmers land.watch out for this guy.he will shoot you.we saw a landmine there the other day.very heavy shallow wave.bodyboards paradise'
All the info sounds good except for the part about landmines and dudes getting shot. If you trying to scare guys from surfing there don't hassle.....since they closed off the road very few guys go thru all the trouble of walking there. Also gas chambers is the spot in the very left corner of the bay.....A-Frames that will make your fillings rattle.....very round and very powerful. Worth the walk if everywhere else is flat!!
