Good break when the wind, tides and swell are all perfect. When it's about 3-4 foot it's more of a boogers wave, but when the swell is a decent size get the stand up out cause it gets pretty snazzy. Stand up barrels everywhere.
Your brains goin so fast you can't think of an atmosphere. When there's swell it keeps comin, very consistent when there's swell.
Does break often but a lot of people go down to surf later in the day when the winds up which makes it pathetic. So go early when its good conditions.
