Atmosphere

Sea Snakes, yeah for sure, oftentimes they'll be on the beach in the AM. I've heard about the sharks, especially "Bruno" but have never seen one. The rocks are a true danger, and in the rocks are urchins so I think it best to wear light weight booties. Another thing to be careful about is the inside when it is over 8 foot. There whompin' section at the end which is famnous for snapping boards and a long shore rip that can drag you down the beach into no mans land. I've only surfed one othere left point in my life, Pakalas (Infinities) on Kauai but any point that tubes has a premier spot,
