Bring a Camera!!!
And there IS the possibility that you will get messed up... This wave slams/launches HARD!!!
This spot is mainly for bodyboarders... Its a wave that has such an intense backwash you ride the whitewash AWAY from the beach, and then if the timing is right the waves will wedge together and you can get launched over 10 ft in the air, leaving room for multiple flips and other insane airs...
very local spot... hard to know when its going off due to rapid changing tides...

When the conditions are right - Here's the scoop: 1. This break only happens a couple times a year2. When it does, expect to see at least a couple grommies from the Pismo Beach 'Esteem' surf crew on the peak. Compete if you will. I'm getting to old and, well, bitter for that on most occasions.3. A tip, without giving away much: Look for the crappiest winter weather/runoff/negative tide/huge nw/s combo and take a look. Beyond that, it's beautiful when it goes--hollow 1-3 foot tubes much like Sandspit in S.B. but more low-pro, brown of course (warmer temps mixed with bacterial waters usually). Look for runoff, and a lot of it--coming from San Luis creek spitting into the beach just north of the tourst pier. No low, no go.
