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!
