Don't go there with the idea to get a lot of wave and to snake people or you'll get yourself killed. Very nice crowed, very local . "be cool and they'll be cool". Surf the inside first and make you're way to the point after a few days.
This spot is the greatest plan on going there early surf, barbecue, surf and leave. Very crowded spot but there is lot's of other spots at walking distance. Churche's, Middles, Uppers, Cotton's.

OC My Ass - This spot is in San Diego. Lowers is in SD uppers is in OC. Churches is in SD. Get your shit together wannasurf. San Diego has way more spots than OC, sorry, but pretend I didn't say that, that way all the LA and OC goons can keep surfing crappy waves.
