This is a serious wave for only very strong swimmers and surfers. Watch out for the caves.
Very nice scenery, lots of garabaldi fish, go snorkle when its flat.

This is not a world class break - This place breaks 3 to 4 days out of the year. Must be at least 8 foot backs to show (16 ft faces). Lots of sections, so good luck taking off in the right place. For locals, its nice because theirs a channel and you can paddle out at LJ Shores. Dont get sucked into the rocks at high tide. High tide bounce.By the way world class means : lets plan a trip, take a plane , rent a hotel (or whatever) and surf it for a week. You're a sucker if you do that here.

World class diving maybe - ? - easiest place in the world for clowns on softies to get in the way of everyone when a medium sized overstuft hamburgessa rolls in every few years-Lotsa fun for the spectators - a few slopey waves for those in the agua

World's Biggest Burger - It's probably the mushiest big wave in the world, unless you ask the 400 longboarders who swarm it every time it breaks. If it's breaking Blacks, Little Makaha, and Sybils are too.
