The spot is between Jap's Cove and Portuguese Bend, closer to Jap's Cove. It's near the border of San Pedro and Rancho Palos Verdes but definetly in PV. Access by taking the trail from below the bluff at the east end of the Ocean Trails development through the Trump golf course.

Hollow right reef/semi point break. Needs a solid west swell before it shows but the name says it all. Wear a Helmet...If you don't want to be life flighted out of there. hahaha
Surfed there back in the 70's and 80's when the locals were insane, and still are. You might still have to throw down. Most wouldn't dare to surf here unless you know the place intimately. There is a rock that you will probably slam you face on and die if you not a expert barrel rider.

seen it - I've seen this spot break once. It's a big right reef/point between Japs and BA's. It has to be huge and due west and even then doesn't always break.

Yo!! Guy who posted this spot! - Is this spot northwest of japs point about 150 yards?? Or is it even farther around the point towards BA's?? I'm just askin cause I've never seen a wave break there - looks pretty gnarly !!
