 Additional Information

Fun moody left with multiple take-off zones. Has become ultra crowded with the onslaught of surfers from the college above and increasing numbers of people chasing internet swells. Way too many guys and locals not yet ready to give it all up makes for some pretty high tension surfs. Too bad....Watch out for older, less skilled surfers trying to rule the peak with big boards and even bigger attitudes. Barrels are pretty rare especially for new comers but if u like hitting the lip 4 or 5 times a wave and huge roundhouses(on the best days of cours) then it's worth a look.

Atmosphere

Paddling out at low tide with some real swell is pretty sweet. Keep moving and know your line-ups, takeoff changes with swell and tide and what is perfect on mid tide may be an unmakeable section at low tide. Also if it's packed theres waves across the channel on both sides so don't just sit and steam.

knock on wood - over 40 years have watched this guy wood act up angry all the time and its an embarrassment. Advice to all the groms, this is what happens when you are a HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUT like wood, so learn your school lessons, have a life, surf and you don't have to act like the terminal end of the alimentary tract because that's all you know how to do

I Think Not - This place is called Ab (not "Abs"). And while it can be a fun wave, there is really nothing critical about it.

About the only "experience" a surfer really needs at any Cliffs break is the ability to make it down the cliffs to some of the better breaks in the area.

"Experienced Surfers" should probably stick to Blacks or LJ reefs.

Real Local!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Lived here my whole life. Ab is a mushey wave, if you think its steep you've never surfed a real wave go buy a plane ticket. It is a wave and a lot of nazbos surf. Some of the older guys try to keep it on lock but spend too much time at the tanning salon.
