Dont park your car where the locals park theres or they will jack it up. be experienced to surf the spot it's a real heavy dangers wave. Late drop with a fast bowl. Double ups and boils. Difficult to predict a close out or a barrel. Dangerous rocks.

what a bunch or crap - i have surfed hazards since i was 14 years old, im now 35. there are a few jerks out there, but screw them. the only one i can think of that would try to fight about it was a dick head named whitey. real jerk. but if you want to try this place all you have to do is go down a little bit from the reef, its called cables. the wave is just as good. winter gets huge and you dont have to worry about the reef or jerks that think they own shit. tell them that too. Fuck you, you dont own this shit. I have had to say that to whitey about 9 years ago. i have not seen him there in some time. also there are reef sharks, i have been 20 feet from some pretty good size ones. so be ready for a deep dark kinda area, its not like the rock at all. thats were i surf now, because duck diving a 15 foot wall of white wash is not so fun any more. so remember to hell with the jerks that think they own shit, just stand up to them and they will respect you, or just go to the rock and kick back like i do.

Right - It really is an intense wave. Fast & heavy. The left is a little easier, but it will also hold you under for a long-time. Cold water too. Prepare to have you ass-kicked. Good luck.

go somewhere else - If you didn't grow up surfing here, you're probably going to be way out of your league. This place gets GIANT and HEAVY, breaks over dry reef and the peak is super competitive. If you're expecting to catch it smaller, remember Montana de Oro is one of the sharkiest places on earth (Great Whites) and it will probably be foggy, overcast and definitely freezing cold. The lefts can frequently be unsurfable from kelp. Can't say you weren't warned.
