Week-end crowdUltra crowded
Go as far up the point as you can....it gets less crowded.....don't be intimidated by spoiled little pv rich kids that infest the area.....just slap the little punks if they give you any lip.
On the right winter swell direction and tide this place can get epic......most of the time it's smaller than the other spots in pv.....hence the large crowds of young pimpley faced grommets here....a long surfing history in the area and a great left hander!
If you can catch it uncrowded (a real rarity nowadays) you can have a fun time.....or if the swell is huge and clean you can sometimes score a really long left!

Respect - Like every sport surfing has protocal. Don't paddle out to the peak of a spot you've never surfed before and start hoarding waves, and cutting people off. Respect those who have come before you. There are a lot of us who have surfed here for decades, so if you are under the age of 25, or haven't surfed here several years, it's about "due diligence." Pay your dues. Surf some of the scraps, and show respect to those of us who are older. We were once your age, and someday, You will want kids to treat you similarly. Remember,those of us who live and surf here, "have each others backs." Treat us with respect and follow protocal which is what you should do at any local spot you decide to surf.

poppy cock - The last entry is completely off his or her rocker. You NEVER apologize to any PV prick who cuts you off, Yes I can fight and no you don't have to park far away. The school is full of ample parking and cops frequently cruz it. Dont' worry about hassels because there ususally isn't any unless your a wimp.

If you get burned just accept it. - That's right. If you get snaked just apologize to that guy that burned you. Sure you might be tough and can fight but you will never surf the hill again and your car will have seen better days. Take it from me I now have to park deep in the neighborhood when I surf this spot. And if you think this spot is dangerous than don't even think about even looking at the surf around the corner.
