Fun peaky wave. Can get slotted now and then. Fun wave to do airs on.
You can surf this spot if you know how to pump kinda well. Its a little weak when small.
Nice people, nice beach, a little polluted and lots of tar.
Can be fun if you like slow and small waves.

its worth the hassle - first off its not really a hassle to check this place, its 2 mins from the freeway, 2nd it is a fun wave for a fish board sometimes, just to get out and surf. your right its not a special wave at all but it can be really fun, stormy days when the points are junky this place can be worth checking as it is shallow so it can get pretty rippable. quit hating all you haters

Not worth they hype - Have checked this place many times and have yet ever to see it truely rideable. Fact is dont stress over a place that barley ever works when swell is in the water would rather be at the million other point breaks around the area then a crummy beach/rock sands wanna be break and sands isnt saying much either.
