oh osprey - Theres definitely better waves at the cliffs. BUT at least this spot rarely gets clogged with longboarders. Getting in and out at a low tide is not hard. higher tide, big day? better not surf here unless you are a really strong swimmer. getting out of the water is challenging. Youtube has some video that will show you why.
The wave mostly goes straight and the inside can barrel. Sometimes this spot will be more consistent than the other waves around. But it never goes unnoticed.
If you take the left you could end up in the endless duckdive.
crowds - when you arrive at the cliffs, your like, shiii!!! everybody & their mom's is out surfing! just walk down south a bit and the crowd will get smaller. otherwise, go when it's big! then you'll see a handful of surfers & a lot spectators. this place has it all. barrels, steep mush-burgers, & kiddy land for the beginners. paddling out can be a bitch because it's a long paddle out.

Jersey Point !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - One of the Mushiest waves at the Cliffs. To top it all off a bunch of transplants who hang out is the parking lot think their local. Just because you've lived here since 1986 does not make you a local your still a kook from New jersey or Texas. Thank goodness this wave filters out a lot of goons from surfing the real waves at the Cliffs.
Excellent break when it goes off, enter and exit are tricky - This is a great winter break with nice long rights, decent, yet mostly devastating lefts. Holds overhead waves with no problem. To enter the water you either have to jump off a rock, or climb down. On bigger days you have to time it right or risk getting bounced off the rock. There is a rip that pulls you out and then just paddle north to the break. If you find yourself caught inside, paddle south the the rip, surf again, and repeat the process. Getting out is trickier than getting in. Sometimes can take 30 minutes to climb up the rock with help from others. Definitely worth the risk on bigger better days but my suggestion is to surf right as the left will surely put you inside.
Cliffs - Thirteen world class reef breaks in a 2 mile area, within site of 3 million people, equals 60 people per spot doing the demolition derby. The further south you go the higher caliber of surfer. If you're visiting forget about surfing Newbreak. Those guys will cut off their own grandmother, and then fire bomb her Buick. Animals!
- I though it was a pretty good summery, and thats not the reason its so crowded its crowded cuz everyone already knows were it is dumbass
- which spot is the hardest to come in at?
Well - It's a nice wave but it's crowded and the local vibe is shitty. As long as you're willing to get in a fist fight, you'll be fine.

Why dont you write a book? - Dude, its one thing t comment on a spot, but to write a book on every spot and explain what, where etc...r u high? What are you a local? Dumbasses like you are the reason the Cliffs get more crowded each year.
