 Additional Information

Spot named after the dirt parking lot antics before the condo's were built. Definitely not the best wave in the area but can get good on certain tides and swell direction. You can get it by yourself on the weekdays but weekends are usually crowded. Mostly a NW swell spot, as the SW swells in the summer close it out. The outside main peak, south of the stairs is the best peak when its breaking. There are scattered peaks to the North side of the stairs which are generally more hollow and fast but are infrequent. There are flat rocks on low tide during the winter, and generally just a sand bottom during the summer.

Atmosphere

Doesn't get all that good very often. When I used to live in the condo's above, I would watch it daily and would not surf it very often. There are a handful of guys who surf it everyday and think they own it and will be jerks.

General

Usually not worth the effort of going down the stairs, but will hold size during the winter swells.

Cool Spot - I used to surf there every once in a while with my High school surf team. Pretty cool place, I would say it is pretty much standard. Usually closes out, when it does get corners it's kinda soft. I like it though, not many people are there, there is some rocks on the bottom, but it's not reef, it's mostly sand on the inside. When it's the middle of the summer and everywhere else is packed, this is a good place to go. It definitely does not get as good as rockpile but it's fun.
