Atmosphere

This spot when its working can be really good. Good break for all size of boards. From Body boards to long boards. On messier days can still have good power behind the wave for bodyboarding or using a mini-mal. On Good days can give a good long ride. On bigger days a jump off the pier can save a hard paddle out but make sure you're confident in deep water and large swell before doing this. There can be a strong rip here but it generally pushes you from one end of the beach to the other at which point you can get out and dander back up to where you started, the force of the rip will depend on what time of year it is and how strong the waves are. Life guards are on this beach in the summer from around June to Sept. Lots of families will be there during the summer too.
