 Additional Information

Only will break on the biggest Winter swells of the year. A short in&out tube on the good days, but on average days its a short closeout on the rocks. Very scenic location and beautiful surroundings. You can't see the break from the road, so it's a secret spot. Prepare to get vibed pretty heavily if anyone's around. There's a small crew who surf here when it's on. The 1 take off spot is 10ft wide and no insiders. It is a relatively obscure spot, as many people don't even know about it. But expect to be vibed!!!

Atmosphere

My grandma could get an in&out tube here!! It's THAT predictable!!! Go to Terranea's Catalina Kitchen for a bite to eat after surf, or Nelsons grill and bar and relax on a beer after a scary session.

- Anyone who knew anything about this place would not be commenting on this page. You guys are definitely kooks. Stay out of PV you will not get barreled here without getting a rock to your dome

- Watch out for the rock and the take off spot is only ten feet wide. Its super dangerous! This wave will drill you.
