A beautiful reef break that has been spoiled somewhat by development. The big green lawn is gone but the waves still roll in. Needs a solid west swell to turn on. When good the locals will be on it and they deserve respect. Be mellow. The atmosphere dictates it. Good tubes on the right tide. Stays clean.
A great and historical spot that deserves respect. Elegant and crisp waves, a class act. Please behave likewise.

Hammy's - I love this place definitely one of my favorite spots on earth. The view is beautiful you can see the harbor and sandspit and lets not forgot all the beautiful moms that flock the place. When daddy is at work the moms put on a show strutting around the beach wow. Haha lets not get to off topic here but to get to the surfing part. The surf is fickle I will give it that but with the right tide and swell which Ill let all you figure out on your own the place can get magical...How do you think Tom Curren got good? Local Vibe is the same as any place be respectful and you will get the same respect back.

Solo session - Way back in '92 I was stayin at the Miramar Hotel with my girlfriend, and I had my board. It rained the first night we were there. But the next morning was clear, so I grabbed my board and walked out to that little "miramar" spot and it was about chest high and clean straight swell. Around the corner looked like bigger, more consistent waves, so we walked about a quarter mile or so to this super fun right reef. Turned out it was Hammonds, and I solo'ed it for about 2 hours. Head high, glassy, and NOBODY else out!!!

surfer - Ni*!a, please... There's no fuckin sharks around here. While very fickle, Hammonds sure can be good; and what a beautiful view from the lineup. Never will forget ditching school in early '90 with a buddy and SCORING Hammonds with just 2 other people out for hours. Good times.
