 Additional Information

It needs a decent sized west or southwest swell to get going, when other nearby waves like Telescopes and Icelands will be really cooking. Try it near high tide, bigger is probably easier to get into the barrel. There is even another left a bit further out and around the point that doesnt seem to have a name.

Nobody surfs much around here, as there are better waves nearby, so you will probably have it uncrowded.

Atmosphere

It's a gnarly, fast, hollow longish barrel that you might just score working if you go around the high tide. About 5 times I have gone past it, there was nobody else around. If its not working, there are several other good waves nearby.
