theres not a lot of parking but this is mostly a locals spot. locals here dont take well to toursts. the locals are mostly beach bums sitin in their cars skatin in the parking lot or watchin the waves.

what a kook... - "...jumping the lineup? that means he lives there and has the boils/rocks wired and knows who deserves a turn and who doesn't...on such a focused local peak, there's no courtesy unless you've known each other for years, etc."
I suppose next time you travel to my spot I'll decide that you don't deserve a turn either. Having a spot wired is far different from snaking everyone by standing on the rock. You think that's "local knowledge" that standing on the rock puts you inside of everyone? Gimme a break, that's just proof of how ignorant you are. Monterey has more than it's fair share of spoiled little rich kids, and brown trout just proved that to anyone with doubt about that.

...lived across the street for years and surfed there all the time...after surfing numerous "localized" spots from Silver Strand to Fullers, etc. this is the only place where someone copped such an attitude that they flat out asked me where I lived!
...Crap wave unless big...Fun for kayaks/longboards when small, however...Watch the turds too...PG is notorious for stormwater/wastewater issues...
