 Additional Information

Semi consistent wave that gets really fun sometimes. Needs the right swell and sand bar. Breaks left and right off the rock point with some beach break peaks off to the right. Less crowded in front of rocks but be careful not to take off into them.

Atmosphere

Right outside of LA and just past Zuma. Public beach with minimal crowd mostly. Can get crowded on a good swell in the summer. If you can surf you'll get plenty of waves as it's spread out here. Even if you can't surf you'll get waves here.

General

I love this place because it's a place to escape the LA crowds and sometimes you'll get it good here. I've surfed it relatively empty with very good waves all to myself in front of the rocks. Nice rides from here. Sometimes longboarders will paddle out. Mostly kooks though and of little concern.

Unwelcome - Watch out for the locals. A few guys have been messed up pretty bad by the regulars. Most of the point regulars are not mouthy but they are violent.

Also, frequent sea lion attacks. They are just as hostile as the locals.

If you must surf here, show up alone and stick to the bay in front of the old bathrooms... But really, don't surf here.

Decent wave - I've been surfing this break for years and it has fun lefts and occasionally good rights on the right south. Watch out for a arrogant bitch named Eric who surfs there regularly. He threatened to hurt me yesterday for looking at one of his waves because he wiped out and claimed there was a wake on the wave from guys trying to paddle in. Definitely bring caution into the water, but this wave is for everyone just like all the other popular spots in Malibu. Have fun.

Fun - Surfed here yesterday .. was planning on going to County Line, but when I got there it didn't look that great ... likewise with Leo. I pulled up to Zero's and it was really clean and fun.
