its a jetty. ITS A JETTY. - if you don't know what that translates to you're already lost without a map. it goes off about 2 times every 3 years if we're lucky, and your chances of being there on that day are infinitesimal. it is otherwise a mediocre wedge full of kooks and groms. most of us are happy it is here, because it gives the local surf-schools someplace to take the kuks. north winds blow side/off here, so if you're looking for a place to snag a few waves on a blown-out spring day, its worth checking. otherwise, unless you live here and can nail it when its on, forget about it. if there's a storm or any remnant of one, don't even bother driving to it, as prevailing s/sw storm winds here tear it up.

- HEY HEY whoever claims to be a thrice-pumping, raised truck gas wasting, air polluting, small wave pussy like all of you "locals" here are, then you're probably the biggest laugh in Norcal and it's time you clowns might be good enough now to take the next giant step to linda mar.

Main Peak Not for Beginners - That main peak gets crowded really easy due to its narrow nature. Unless you can handle steep drops and crowds stay away. The locals are getting pissy these days with good reason! A lot of beginners with no wave sense or surf ettiquette are going for the main peak which is way more advanced than they can handle. They don't know where the wave is coming from or where it's going and don't angle their takeoffs accordingly. Blindly paddling for anything that comes along is not going to make any friends for you. They then proceed to at the very least get in the way on nearly every takeoff. Some drop on waves they can't handle and boards go flying every which way causing physical injuries and damage to other people and their boards. I get pretty grumpy too when someone runs me over and dings my board! Look around, left right, slightly behind you, definitely in front of you. Good surfers can pick the path to take before they're on the wave. If you're a beinner make an honest assessment of your skills and go to the break consistent with your skill level. I'm a fairly good surfer and if I blow 3 drops in a row at main peak it's not for me that day. The sand bars down the beach aren't the best waves in the world but at least there you're not blowing it for those who know what to do with good waves. I love you but please stop threatening me with your surfboard! Fins are sharp and boards are hard! As with any sport you have to pay your dues in the minors before you can play with the pros.
