Dangers

- Rips / undertow

 Additional Information

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.

Atmosphere

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.

Well, summers almost over.  Friday evening I was surfing 17th and wiped out on some powerful shorebreak- I had to get 2 staples put in my head.  Now Im out of the water for 10 days.  Thats the Dog Days of Summer.

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
