 Additional Information

Occy in his former heyday ruled this spot for extended periods of the surf season. To go right is to negotiate a hectically fast wall that barrels in varying sections towards the main takeoff zone at Supertubes. To make it through these sections, especially backhand, is a noble feat. It's even possible to take off at outside Boneyards, fly through some heartstopping barrels and exit right at Supertubes, then scream obscenities at the numerous jealous surfers trying to drop in on you. Boneyards works differently at different sizes. When it's generally flat, and there's hardly a ripple at Supers, Boneyards can get a few 3' waves. In these, and slightly bigger conditions, you can go left as well as right.
