barrels - I just sat wide when i was there everyone hussles the peak and they are often too deep so if they dont make it go I got 6 barrels on 5 waves and got out stoked not that good though fuerte too much wind clean days on the north shore are quite rare

Locals - Ya. The bubble, when it is on will be covered with around 10-15 locals who know each other very well and will pick off every single set wave. They will drop in on you even when you have waited patiently and are on the peak inside. You will not get a set wave and good luck sitting inside trying to pick off the smaller ones when a bomb set comes through. Excellent wave though. A-frame with hard sucking tubes both sides.
