Atmosphere

eautiful spot. long long paddle out on good days. mellow pot smokin locals abound. its a good spot when all the rippers are jammed up cutting each other off in the Soup Bowl. Good rides can be 500yds+ often overlooked because of the open ocean look to it. doesnt really barrell except on take off. way rippable walls.

huge, glassy and perfect - It was on december, in this beach the wave brakes a lot into the sea, so you have to paddle a lot to get to the point. Once i got to the point the waves were like 8ft to 1ofts perfect conditions. in the firts wave I rode, my brother yelled me

WAAAAAY Back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - First surfed Soups in 1973. Stayed in the house overlooking the break. My buddy and I decided to surf Parlors. Big but not huge. Got outside! waited 20 minutes! BOOM, 8' 10 wave set. Learned a lot that day. Ahhhhh youth!!!!

i lost my board out there - it was soup bowl comp and i got bored of watching the comp 2005 so me friends and i went out parlor it was 12-15ft i cought this moster ave about 16ft i was scarde but me mates were screaming at me to go for it so i went for it i was too late.... i went over the falls my leash was not tighted on propally so it came off and i was about a 1/4 mile out to sea i was only nine so it was hard for me to swim in with 12-15ft luckly i knew how to body surf and it was big enough to swim with out fins after that i cant rember last i went there i always surf at sandy lane or when its flat i surf at brandons or tropicna

size - Usually as size gets bigger waves get more critical and harder to surf...not this one..as long as you can handle the increase in speeed this wave stays pretty fun above D overhead. Suits a longer board at smaller sizes.
