ig,very big,and hard to get out too.sharks are a problem so go in a group.it's fun to watch this spot break from the cliff.shark nets have now been installed 100 yards outside of "Cliffs". A spot of this caliber needed to be made safe for all surfers from around the world to enjoy. in addition, the "cliffs" surf school will be providing surf lessons to people of all ages- so they can learn to enjoy "Cliffs" also. The last writer didn't mention that while "cliffs" breaks perfect at 25 feet (better than anywhere in the world), it becomes a perfect point, similar to rincon, at 3-5 feet. even though there can be anywhere from 50 to 100 people surfing it daily, there are plenty of waves to go around. kelly slater told me, last time he came to cliffs, that he surfs his best there. Another great aspect of "Cliffs" is the free BBQ the locals offer to visitors at the Cliffs picnic area. nothing like tri tip or chicken, and a corona (free also) to top off a perfect "Cliffs" experience. if you're an experienced pro, a recreational surfer, or just someone who wants to get in the water for the first time, Cliffs has something to offer you!
its a good spot overall,there's never any people out to.the only croup is he fleash eating ones below the sufrace ,..........but other then that is awesome
have fun,go in a group

and the water is like 69 degrees - by some freak of nature, the water here is always 10-15 warmer than anywhere else in the CC. I once was able ride a wave like 1/2 mile here. You have to surf this spot.
