- Rips / undertow
Watch the current on bigger swells (head high +) As its very easy to end up 1000 yards down the beach in 10 minutes. Riptides and undertoes galore... sandy bottom is deep for the first 20 yards out, then sandbar comes up. Mushy take-offs turn into gaping barrels if you can connect the sections and make it to the inside.
Very fun wave, very rippable. Shorebreak will catch you by surprise. Its a lot more powerful than it looks. There is hose in a nearby parking lot that is great for washing off after a fun session.

Point Breck - 19th Street - The Point requires a south swell. When it is on the rips are everywhere and finding a peck is a moving target. It is an awesome wave if you can catch it. Best wishes, JC
