Week-end crowdFew surfers
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 locals 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.
Unless experienced surfer do not go out! Only exception is if no one is out. Park in front of sewer plant on South Paseo Del Mar and look for trail going down. Whatever you do stay away from shack. Localized break that will get your tires slashed and leash cut. Stay out of water in all PV spots unless picking a fight.
Very good wave when wave size and tide is right. Stay out of PV unless you want to surf PV Cove because that is the only place you are invited to surf if you don't live. Locals will tear you to shreads so beware.

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.
