This spot is a crazy wall of danger one wrong move and your deep under the water the reef is made up of boulders it breacks in sections. 1: the outside reef the seeel hits this reef and forms into a wave. 2: second reef is the normal wave this is wher you catch the beast(if you can)This part is the steep drop in it feels like the wave is a 90 degree angle.Make the drop and you should be fine on a good day it goes on 3: third reef more inside and the wave reforms sometimes making a line or bowl not usual though. 4: Inside reef last one where summer surfing can happen or if you get enough speed to make this section. This wave is great but dangerous dont paddle out with out being sure of your abilities and a good friend you trust.
take all procautions as you would to go to the point. Walk softly and carry a big stick.
Not usually a local problem, but the wave is extremely powerful. I have been crushed by it and sucked over the falls, and believe me, its no picnic. On a good day there is a short right, sometimes has better shape than left.
Powerful Break. Be careful. Short but fun, safe too, as long as you dont go at low tide.

A possible tow in spot - I've seen "outer avalanche" breaking 2 to 3 times the size of lunada bay across the bay. It is a total slab type break at that size. I think it was 50 ft face. Some day some one may tow in to a quick left there.

Ive seen it great - a couple times but it looked like kelly slater was the quality of these two surfers, just ripping and knew exactly where to be, looks like a shifty reef that can kill you if not careful or experienced.

Better than gettign hassled on the trail.. - It looks like a slow breaking mush peak. Like you could drop in and immediatly to a 360 in the mush and slide down in it. Or just drop in and do one roundhouse. I dont live here but I;ve never seem it "tube" - just a big mush in..
