Very easy to find....take the main highway next to the hotels heading nort-west. To your left You will see a stranded rusted ship on shore.....keep on going till you pass the beautiful Malmok homes, Arashi beach and eventualy the golf club on your right...before heading towards the Lighthouse make a left on a dirt road...follow that dirt road for another 300 yards or so and you'll see Westpoint right infront of you with it's big rocks sticking out of the water.

Go with a local.
You can jump of the rocks or there is a small beach to enter/exit about 50m from the spot. First timers, paddle around and find your line through the rocks that stick out.
Best when big and connects all the way through Rancho and Arashi beach.
You can find some waves here even when Arashi and Rancho are flat. It's a good alternative for when you drove all the way to Rancho and it's flat but really wanna paddle out. I love this spot for longboarding.
Be hardcore but don't get yourself killed.

I still go there - mostly when rancho is flat, and I'm already around there, and don't wanna go to Dunes. I think because of the rocks there are usually still 3-4ft waves and yea they are on and around rocks sticking out. Not great I agree, but I enjoy it still and ride my longboard there. Watch your fins though, can be pretty shallow.

a rarity - this place rarely breaks. and when it does most people will be at rancho. i had a great session here years ago when the swell came from a different direction(W instead of wrapping aropund the tip from NE) and the bottom was covered in sand carried by the waves. only 2 other people out. as a former windsurfer i knew this spot had potential for surf/boogy. but i rarely rode it because it's so fickle.
i love my boogy
