You'll need a boat. Otherwise, paddle from Ft. Cronkite beach across the very inside of the break then scoot around to the right-hander, being sure to stay well in the channel the whole time. DO NOT attempt to paddle to this spot from the Golden Gate Bridge or Deadmans- the currents can be life-threatening (not to mention the tankers coming in and out of the bay)...

Spot has been surfed before by Doc Renneker and friend. Has been described by tow-in crews as 'A Devil's playground'. Spot tends to shift around alot towards the outside. Under ideal conditions you will see a decent right reforming on the inside and rolling into the channel. Spot considered by most as too psycho to surf- but may be explored more in the future, especially with tow-in. Can look clean and regular, but still is VERY HEAVY! Do not even attempt to surf here unless you are Jeff Clark or one of the SERIOUS big-boys with years of giant-wave riding and pounding experience.
It's all yours (and the Devils...)

What food chain? What red triangle? - No buddy ever taught me or my great finned locals that mere humans could catch us & eat us for supper. We just eat anytime we want, & enjoy surfer-snacks as treats between feeding frenzies. Wanna join our next picnic? Southers, newcomers, Deadman's & Bo-Stin's boys are all being equally welcomed with open jaws as I'm texting this IM.
