This spot (Tabletops)is an outside reef break that is epic on a low tide south swell. The right may appear slow, but it wraps around a reef and is really fast. No late drop ins. Get some great barrels. Playgrounds is out in front of the lifeguard tower it kind of sucks!
Nobody ever really surfs the spot.
It is sometimes really good!

Surfed It This Morning (6/9/09) - Very little swell anywhere else and when I checked here it was chest high and fun. IMO a nice wave for sure. The reef sucks though, I kicked it with one foot by accident and it still hurts a little.

Cant Surf? Dont come here - Been surfing here all my life, and well, the past 10 years have been horrible due to the amount of people surfing it. Don't know where everyone comes from, I guess that doesn't matter. What does matter is you should know how to surf and know etiquette before trying to come out. Its extremely shallow, and often pitches a fast tube right from the takeoff. Inexperienced guys have been seen out here way too much, and its getting annoying.

the news misreported - The shark attack was actually between fletcher cove (aka pill box) and tabletops. It was not over the reef at table tops. It quite a ways away.
