 Additional Information

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.

Atmosphere

Deep water and a healthy Salmon population makes this spot a regular haunt for large sharks so keep an eye out.
