 Additional Information

Just try to ride the wave as hard as you can and don't worry about it.

Usually best in the fall, though you can find rides there almost any day of the year.

During larger days you can paddle out along the Rock in power plant outlet to get out without having to duck as many waves (plus it is 5 degrees warmer). Just beware that you walk down the rocks by the fence, so watch dinging your board on the rocks, so don't do this method unless you know how to do it.

Atmosphere

The Rock can get pretty big in the winter but is best in the Fall. Try to surf there in the morning time because of the wind factor and be ready to have fun. Very chill vibe, lots of nice people out on the water. Follow standard surfing etiquette and you'll have a blast out there.

General

Great fun spot. Usually pretty mushy wave but on the right tide and get pretty hollow and fun. The left that comes off the rock is pretty consistent, usually have to go down the beach a little more to find a good right. Super fun place.

Alright so I'm jealous that you're still getting what I used to get right before you. - So I'll admit that it's a stretch to label you at all, & I'm truly sorry for that now Mr.NC. Only my real initials stand for over 30 years of west coast surfing memories, whilst covering many of the best spots from Santa Cruz to Baja Cali, in other words I'm rich enough just owning my piece of CA surfing's legacy. By the way I'm not yet bald, & haven't been rightfully called a kook since '73. Touche' bro... I'd really like to take up that fine offer of a lunch someday, with yet another true Matador of our Central Coast, don't let yourself get gored in the meantime buddy.

Bpk(Bald Poor Kook) - I may only be 36 but I have lived here for 32 of those years (hardly a newcommer) Lets have lunch, im buying.

Telling it like it is ain't name calling NCa.. - So if them Newcomer Geek booties fit, wear 'em in good health bro.
