Balls - If you have some, you can paddle from Crystal Cove to Three Arch.

By Anonymous , 28-03-2010

best secret ever - Mysto cove here called "infinitum", outside reef is cloudbreak but powerful peak A-fram, nice lots of face, then comes into the cove building steeper. Both sides then wedge off either side of the cove to create wedge conditions inside. South side of cove is like perfect 10th street was 20 years ago, but north side is a mirror image right hander wedge with a massive launchpad at the end every time. If you take off outside, then if you can straighten out while entering cove. Use your speed and turn the other direction to catch its wedge and get shacked. So you get to hone your skills both directions on each wave. Crystal clear clean warm water in the summer. This is why people live here and its so guarded, they dont want schmozles like you ruining it just like every other spot on the map.
