Bird Shit is an "inside" circular flat rock reef. It is situated at the top of a small bay. Direct access is difficult and many surfers have been injured taking the shortcut next to the parking lot. Paddle north from "No Surf" beach or South from Osprey is safer.
Bird Shit has three different waves. The Left, a short bowling wave that slows down for a few cutbacks. The Right, a top to bottom suck out barrel that abruptly stops and turns to mush and the reform off the right that mushes down the line for another 100 feet or so getting faster and faster as it approaches a rock shelf.
Always some surf there.
