Go to hell - I have surfed Hells for many years and it aint for the faint hearted .Dont come if you want the perfect wave cause it will eat ya and ya board.It has to be the worst place to get caught inside cause ya gotta paddle against the hell rip and handle the deep inside channel.Good luck to those who dont know the local conditions.
