General

Had some epic days here........Winter can be relentless so BE CAREFUL.
Summer is usually the best because Blues picks up anything out there. Days where it is flat elsewhere it can be 3-5 at blues,easily.

Blues - Wedge peaks on crossed-up swells are the best. Don't surf it often, but never had a bad session there. Sharks? Just don't paddle out with the JAWS them stuck in your head and you'll be fine.

great to have "blues" here - this spot is, easily, one of the best breaks along the mendo coastline, and, also, one of the gnarliest. there is a shark danger here, and, after the beach made headlines in aug. of '04, many people became skeptical of paddling out here. that's great for us locals, we have more fun here anyway.

- I go up and surf mendo during the summers. This is one of my favorite places on earth, and the waves can be tons of fun. Blues can get great waves (with a real punch) but it is one of the heaviest shark vibes I have ever felt...
