 Additional Information

T Street, on a small day, has breaks all over the place. It's known for its consitency - but it doesn't always put up perfect rights or lefts. It's sometimes better at low tide.
The main spots are:
the Reef: lefts start to break slowly and have a fast bowl after. Rights are long walls with a final shorebreak.
Cropley's: only during winter. fast rights. In front of the snack bar. Need a NW swell.
Beach House: sandbar, lefts and rights. Less crowded. The inside is generally all sand, but cropleys is sharp, barnacle covered rocks. The reef has a bunch of rocks and kelp that get annoying when it gets caught on you leash. All in all fun wave when it's 3-4+.

Atmosphere

It's a friendly place. A larger crowd in the AM hours though - so, watch out.

werd - This is my go to spot as default. Been goin here for 15 years. Black ball sucks ass during summer, good winter spot. Lame spongers, the old timers (spongers) are cool dont mess with them. Reef is always a slow wave. Beach house can be really fast and throw some short barrels.

T street rocks - I've been going to T-street since before I could walk. This is one of the most consitant beaches I have ever been to. It breaks all over, on all swells, and usually always has a decent ride
