General

Great spot, some days as good as Malibu. Bummer about pollution though, the water here is never clear.

Where's the left? - It's described as a right and left; I didn't see a left when I went to check it out. I saw a few sort-of left breaking waves, but not really. I'm new to the area and scoping spots out; I moved here from San Diego.

sunset hmmm? - i live right up sunset and i used to surf here everyday and still do surf here when i wanna get a quick wave or two. with that said dont go to the point cause it only crowds the place. if you cant surf go somewhere on the inside or south (lifeguard ower, staircases).
the point can be super fun with a god size swell if you wanna just chill and get some relaxing waves.
ok ill prolly be strung up if the right people found out about what im about to say but the real place to surf at sunset "boneyards".

paddle past the point towards the jetty and youll see what i mean...only on a lower tide. id say 2ft or lower if the swell is no big deal. if its a bigger swell it doesnt matter...prime conditions = lower tides good swell direction for sunset means good bones and those precious santa ana winds (offshores)
like the point, dont surf here if you suck...youll be notified most def...especially here its really heavy/breaks right at the rock wall/not to mention dodging dry rock. but id say getting a tubed is worth it.
go ahead try boneyard. ill see you there when its on

Get you Hep-B Shot!! - I have surfed it only twice, got a sinus infection twice. Did not want to chance a third. Fun longboard wave, though.
