Depressions - I have surfed Depressions a bunch over the last couple years and the place can get good. Need the right tide and kind of swell but I will let you guys figure that out on your own. Dont get discouraged if it is small can still be fun. Ps the misto left is true on the right swell and tide very pockety wave even when small ill post 2 photos of me on one

- actually you are out of luck. the waves are usually smaller than my dingaling after getting out of the water.

The best part about Depressions is... - sex on the beach after hooking up at a party on Del Playa. Can't tell you how many times I saw the two-backed beast going at it below my apartment. The wave itself is small, closed out and oily (tar blobs everywhere). It's not really a wave to be honest.
