Week crowdFew surfers
- Rips / undertow
Get here early particularly in summer as carpark and crowds build up very quick.
dont rock off unless you know where and when (same if you surf the less consistent point on the south end) your just gonna hurt yourself
there are good peaks to be had all up and down the beach, and the south end very occasionaly in winter turns on for a short sucky but memorable barrel
Can be a good place to escape the summer crowds, though not so much anymore. food can be very expensive here so bring your own if you are coming for the day or head into Av. Rangers can be savage too so make sure you have a sticker or buy a ticket.
this place is great around april as there is still swell and the crowds die off tremendously.
Dont listen to any of that "im a local bullshit", as there are no real locals here!
