three min spot one right off the road called road sides, can connect all the way thru the bay sometimes with up too one mintue ride and 5 second barrel. the second one is oin the middle of the bay this one packs a punch onto a shallow sandbar but can get ledgy/wedgy barrels and the thrid is called tracks with set that bomb on the outside that mush thru the middle then reform on the in-side into a wall ride into the shore line
People say it is localized but this is not true at all good vibes here wanna be locals at best here secret channel right by roadsides that take you right out with dry hair inta channel line up with the two submerged rocks on you right when padding out to get out easier
good sunets, good beach, and pretty mellow people this plce is usually bigger than anyother place in monterey

about as "local" as it gets - First of all, you have to trek to Monterey (who really goes to Monterey, except central Californian winos)...then you gotta drive all the way around the point with all your 4/3 suit, hood, booties and maybe even gloves (depending on how acclimated you are). The water, however, is as blue and clear as Tahiti and the wave is kind of a reef/right point break setup. It's far from warm, though.

Sharks - I've been surfing this place since the mid 70s. Had 3 major Great White experiences here in the early 80s. I was the last person Lou Boren talked to before he was killed by a Great White. I surfed here 2 months ago and it still spooks me. Make sure theirs at least 10 people out to better your odds lol.

Current - Everyone says the sideshore current here is bad, they are all right. I paddled and paddled away from the rocks and basically stayed in one spot, the cold water doesnt help either. it was head high + when i was there and I can only imagine what its like when it is bigger. My little cousin got stuck out and I had to go rescue him, not a spot for the por paddler or poor swimmer, so be careful out there!
