Move over shark island!!!! - Ive surfed this place a few times, its deffinately one of the top west coast spots around. When its big dont go in unless youre a pro or kamakazi, this wave will work you across the reef and buttrape you if you wipeout. Ive seen it as heavy as shark island, its brutal to say the least..
