Atmosphere

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.

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.

By Not a Local , 25-04-2006

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..
