This spot involves a long walk down a couple hundred steps to get to sea level which is a lot harder on the way back up after a big surf. This spot is probably the one most open to swell in the area, so its a sure thing when all the other spots are flat On the other hand the swell doesnt have to be big before this place is dangerous and unsurfable.
Deep water and a healthy Salmon population makes this spot a regular haunt for large sharks so keep an eye out.
Worth a look if you dont mind fish with big teeth and the swell is tiny
