Paddle out in the center of the cove, then head right for the point. The right point you surf at is the left point of Lunada Bay. Watch out for locals, and rocks especially.Has a pretty strange take off next to large rock at the end of the point. One of the faster waves in PV, but also one of the more powerful. Has huge bowl and on a good day had crazy tubes. Usually not very localized as long as you respect all the other guys out and dont do anything stupid.
There is only about four guys that go there, and they pretty open in letting people surf there. The only real localism is at Lunada Bay, but if you do stupid shit, they'll get pissed. They might cut you off and cuss you out, but nothing to extreme. It is one of my favorite spots, mainly because it's the only other right-hand point that isnt covered with assholes in PV. Truly remarkable when its pumping, and is a great sunset spot. Gets crowded with only few people because there is only on take off spot.
Its a short fun right, way worth going to when haggartys is flat, or if locals are not letting you surf anywhere else.

Spongers? - Last comment: yeah, right. Been here 47 years, surfing 39, never seen a sponge at Wallys. Have to ask Milo about this BS. If you have such an attitude, I suggest you stay home. Too bad requiring emails still results in lies printed on this website.

Surfers Be Warned - This is one of the original sponge spots of California. If you know anything about California boogie culture you understand that this is a quintessential location to the progression of the sport. Surfers beware, this is now one of the last true boogie havens on the California Coast. Don't be angry when we drop in bottom turn and do el rolos off the top while you are still flailing back in the foam. Now you know.

to stickers- - its so that they advertise their company, if they put their stickers by surf spots, surfers will start to recognize that company, and when they go into a store and see their product, then they(in theory) will buy it.
