Park an sano and walk.... surf with a fast board otherwise you wont make it across the seccions
The spot is really nice...very hollow right, fast, and isn't dangerous, dont drop in, mainly all longboarders, there are two peaks, when they join because sand acumulates, they become one single epic pointbreak
Nice wave... when el nino comes, and there are a lot of rains, the sandbar grows making the wave an entire single wave, not the usually 2 peaks.

All fun. - Church is, was and always will be a fun spot. If you think you are a hard charging, Island tube guru you are in the wrong place. If longboarders scare you off, good. Just go out with a smile and your speedos and you'll get all the waves you want;-) Goin straight!

GySgt S.D. Shredder - I was one of the few who was lucky enough to literally call Churches my home break. Myself and a few other core Marine surfers lived in the old mobile home park within walking distance of Church. We always enjoyed catching more waves than most of the longboarders, and watching those guys and their random acts of buffoonery. I'm glad that Uncle Sam owns so much prime coastal real estate. Church's, Point Mugu, DMJ's, etc, etc. It's all mine, ALL MINE!!!! Buwahahaha!!!!! Buwahahaha!!!!!

dont hate on "jar heads" - first and foremost respect every person that risk their lives so you can can surf, wear your bluetooth, and drink your $4.00 cup of starbucks. the marines are cool enough to let us surf there so why should anyone hate on them. I would love to see someone run their mouth off to them. When you surf this place have fun and show some respect these guys dont want to die for their country but the will do so gladly.
