Dev - Dev can get really fun but there are some rocks from the land of the lost underneath you. And oh not to mention watch out for all the school kids getting caught inside and taking you out

- there was a plan propossed last week to put 90 min metered parking in at the end of DP. so that means 15 minutes to sands, 60 min surfing, 15 min to your car... great.

- I remember this day.. that guy tries to take off on the sands side... BIG mistake in that size. he ended up getting into the line up down in front of the torn down house w/ everyone else. I'd say it was a good 10 ft. but this place is soooo fun and idealistic for anything when it's 4 ft. or better (anyone who has had those great AM sessions knows the deal!) =) =) =)
