On a good day, the northern cove is the place to go, but than again, that's where everyone goes.awesome spot to go when the surf is no good any where else. this spot does not always produces long fast waves, but sometimes can. it seems to pick up any swell and is blocked from the wind by the cove.
This spot has a laid back atmosphere and can be described as old man's south
good place to learn or just hang out

... - this is the mushiest, most crowded, piece of dung wave I've ever surfed.

Place is good for longboarding. - This place rocks if you wanna go out and ride a longboard like the rest of the people there. Yes, there are a few of us locals that use no leashes cause we don't use them unless it's over 6 foot or so inside of the cove, but don't worry normally we are good about holding onto our boards. You will see everyone out there on any given day. The kid that is ditching school to practice his newest obsession with noseriding, the expat just hanging out and talkin story in the parking lot, Skip Frye cruisin by on a wave with his impecable style, maybe even me doin some cutbacks and havin the time of my life. This place is very historical for what people like Skip Frye, Mike Hynson, Larry Gordon, Mike Doyle, and Floyd Smith have done for surfing since having these waves to ride. Have fun here, don't be bitchy, and spread aloha.
