 Additional Information

If the swell isn't big enough check the cove it usually has fun small waves and you can see indicators from the cliff. might want a big board if theres swell because it's ledgy and somtimes epic!

ALt View: The place is totally overgrown with kelp to the point that you can't paddle, the rocks are big sharp and all over the place. To top it off the crowd are local Ass-holes who drop in on you and are super aggesive and pick fights and chase people out of the water. Not worth the trouble for an extremely mediocre wave.

redrose - I have surfed here since 1982 and have never been hassled. but i keep my mouth shut and never snake anyone. a good attitude goes a long way when surfing a break that you are not known at.

DON'T SURF INDICATORS! - If you surf here, you'll get your ass kicked. I surfed here once. A dude snaked me on a wave, then told me to get off his wave. Afterwards, he paddled back out and bitched me out. After I apologized, he paddled right up to me and punched me in the face. NEVER will I surf here again, nor would I recommend it to anybody, considering the subpar nature of the wave.
