beware when taking the short cut and beware if you drop in! the wedging bowls are epic.
it is peaceful and a little out of te way. good core of locals if you can get accepted. wedging perfection and powerful sections make for epic bodyboarding, and outside barreling peaks make for great surfing or bodyboarding.
it is loved by all who have been there ona good day.

World class for crappiest beach break in the world. - It's total crap virtually always, & the geeky local kids that don't have a driver's license yet brag on it with lies about it ever getting any good, you gotta be totally stranded with no where else to go to surf this place. Hence its name.

Funny anonymous! - I spent years @ Strands, the point boys are not friendly and don't give anyone waves. As for beginner, if you are a beginner who wants to get pounded!

- I surf here all the time, i wear a spring suit with booties and a hood, and ride a 8ft soft top. Everyone here just lets you go and shares the waves with each other!!!! espically the locals dudes off the point very freindly locals!!! and a great beginner spot.
