It's more of a Novelty Wave.
This wave works on low-tide and shuts down due to increase in depth.
It takes a big-swell and clean winds to groom this wave into something rideable.
Most people go right, but you can go left as well. It's mostly a big-drop and that's it. It tales off fast unless the swell is overly gigantic, then there is a slightly longer shoulder going right and breaks towards the oncoming shoulder of Spooners (the Left).
On messy combined swells from NW and West that are huge (18'+@20sec) A-frames can combine with Spooners to become one hell of a nasty closeout. On these days it's fun to just watch.
A-frames is a perfect wave for practicing Tow-In's. There is lots of room to maneuver a ski and we have towed into here before. It's great for practicing big drops, but that's about it.
Be careful towing and only tow if nobody is out.
Launch your ski at Morro Harbor, jam out of the the mouth and travel south until you reach Spooners Cove.
There isn't a large consequence of wiping out here besides 12 tons of water on your head. The wave quickly disapates into the deep cove and regains it's form when it gets near the beach where it becomes a fat shore-slapper.
It rarely breaks and even more rarily surfed. When it is breaking, most everyone opts for the Big Left on the South side of the Cove (Spooners) or the Big Rights on the North side of the Cove (Lonesomes).
Remember, it's a novelty wave not good for much else.

LandLords - This is LandLords. It is a tow in spot for santa barbara guys who come up here because their Surfline.com software has their loins groaning for personal glory, and since the second jet ski (with the camera crew) needs lots of room to get the shot, this place is for you. You can dodge rocks (airbourne rocks) and launch from the trailer of your f450 turbostroke diesel or travel the six miles from the Bay riding your dreamy choad pumping four stroke while you partner rubs his manhood against your cocyx. Definately bring you boogie attatchment for your seadoo because we can use it as a thomson carrier when we load you back into your 2004 billarustyquikagonia super surf (and girl getting glam machine) vehicle. In closing, the stink eye that you are recieving actually absorbs into your skin and marks you life. Anyhow, we hope your stickerplacemnt is right for you, it could afford you and new diamond plate wench endowed front bumper. you can use it to right you vehicle after you get out from your second visit.
