If you are not that familar with the area, be aware. This place is super localized. So if your gonna paddle out, dont bring more than one friend, keep to yourself, and rip.
With the right swell and tide, this place goes off. It has to be a Huge S swell for this place to work. Sucks up super hard on the reef and just dumps. really hollow and bowly too. fun.

Beware of car break-ins - There has been many vehicle break ins recently at this parking area. These guys that are hitting the cars are pros.
They are in and out of your car in less than 1 minute and leave no signs of breaking in. Cash and credit cards are taken but they leave the wallets. Cards are used within minutes. Small valuable items are taken too.
Watch out! Report all break-ins to the State park rangers.
