Best in early morning before the wind is on it with a rising tide. Not surfable at low tide due to extreme tidal changes in this region.
Usually less crowded than other spots in the area due to long walk and the fact that it is a very fickle wave. Hard to get it good but when it's on it is possible to get 3 or 4 barrels on a wave and several good turns in between.
If you catch it when it's good it's one of the funnest rights you'll ever surf. Be ready for long paddles back out.
