 Additional Information

This spot is nice because it is very scenic and you most always will have it to yourself. Take a shortboard or longboard and go at negative tides only. Too much swell- over head-high, starts to get a bit out of control. Smaller waves can be fun and snappy, and sometimes there is a decent right off the rock stack. This area is offshore on south winds, and sometimes can form ledgy little bowl sections. While Ocean Beach is far better, this is a 'surreal' diversion spot, and can be memorable.

Atmosphere

All the rocks are on the beach- at low tide there are no rocks out where the surf breaks, so you can let loose and not worry. Just don't surf it above a 0.0 tide, or if there's too much swell. It's usually just semi-fun junk surf.

Another hoax - Like the cogwheel, this is not a real surf spot. It is just water breaking into a buncha rocks.

further out - when it gets big it breaks of this rock further out and you can get 8 to 10 foot barrels when its offshore but you have to have gigantic balls its really knarly inreality if seen it ive contemplated going ou but it was a little to junky for me but i would love to watch someone try to surf it and die hidden rocks under water

no title - No joke, this is a big gay cruising spot. I'd surf just about anywhere else, even Marin. There at least the gay guys have suits on and are surfing, not naked and cruising...
