 Additional Information

u can usually park on the road, if its too crowded as usual, the restaurant gray whale charges 5 bucks for parking (lame!). westwards is a diverse spot. many surfers go there but there are plenty of bodyboarders on good days due to the heaviness of the wave. if u wanna surf there, u should be able to handle EXTREMELY heavy closeouts on good days. watch out for rips and the water is super shallow so if u catch a wave wrong, u could end up tweakin ur neck.

Really? - Do any surfers on this site understand proper grammar? Like seriously, what the hell are any of you talking about? Are you all 14 years old or just high school dropouts? Stop posting nonsense I'm pretty sure I'm not the only surfer with a college education.
