normal beach break, with many faces, everyday has a new look to the wave, dont go to the pit unless you know how to surf, if you are learning or you're a barn go to leadbetter
local vibe, mesa crew, the pit mafia think they own the place, but they are all barns.
good spot to go after school/work, saves gas, and is usually surfable.
