in la jolla... drive down la jolla blvd, when you see birdrock st. take a west., park go down the stairs negotiate your way over the slippery rocks,into the water and paddle southwestpast the big rock (should be on your right)with the birds on it to the obvious break. Don't worry the pod of longboarders will mark the spot.

catch this spot at low tide with your shortboard. the left can be hollow. on a big day epic barrels. the right is less hollow but longer. high tide- paddle in unless you have a longboard. when its breakin' there will be perfect lefts and rights peelin' off a single epic peak.
The locals aren't violent but they all seem to know eachother and one will surely be on every wave (generally same crowd as windansea) show respect and locals will start to tell you which way their going so you can have a taste. show no respect and they will go out of their way to ruin your ride.

Fast E - bird rock - this was heavy rocky access for little reward, nasty locals, long paddle, plenty of submerged rocks which locals happily won't show you, dings every time, much better one or town reefs north or south

PB Point or South Birdrock? - Well yesterday lowtide i tried out this spot in between PB Point and South Birdrock. The beach is nothing but gravel, and you have to walk down a steep hill to get there. Whats that place called? It had a nice left, long ride but it was first time over the reefs. That is some scary s**t. It was just my two buddies and i, awesome wave but jeez that reef and those rocks. Very spooky, note to self,*dislike when paddling and then your hand hits reef*.
