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.
ive been bodyboarding westies for quite some time now. im pretty sure most of the people reading this are stand ups.experienced bodyboarders and surfers at westies respect each other because we all know what the fuck is up. if ur a stand up taht has any kind of dislike towards bodyboarders, dont come here, cuz there are plenty of bodyboarders here. and vice versa, if ur a booger taht doesnt like stand ups, dont come here either. everybody here respects and recieves respect.
this spot is great for both surfing and bodyboarding. during the best season which is summer, its crowded on the beach with kids from the valley tryin to be cool. its a great place to surf

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.
