 Additional Information

try the far left corner next to the cliff at low tide. it produces some nice wedges with quite a bit of side wash. Low tide is a heavyer shorebreak with some barrels to be had. Higher tide gives long mellow rides with not too much power. on a big offshore day at low tide u have the choice of a bigger melower outside break or the heavey closing out shorebreak.
