Fossil beach can be surfed on both sides. On larger days the reef is much better than the beach break.
NO CROWDS! Pristine, and i caught my first wave here.
Its mainly a beach break so it offers a variety of waves.

Solid - One of the most premier and pristine breaks I have ever been. Black sand beaches, pinks running up the river, and clean right or left breaks on a sandy bottom. A crowded lineup here means more then 3 people in the water, and throw a shaka to the locals and your good to go.Not as cold as you may think in the summertime, buckle down in the winter! I tackled it in a 4/3 Psycho with no problem year round.
