 Additional Information

The best time to hit up this spot is when the swell is really small because this spot is a sandbar break that usually breaks onshore. The spot is mostly for bodyboarders, but i have seen some hard core surfers charge this spot. If you come on the right day you can get long, hollow, makeable barrels....this place is a playground for bodyboarders when the offshores are blowing, hollow, fast and bowly, with a fat lip to smack

Atmosphere

There is no point break, so you wanna look for the best break on the sand bar, which is usually down south a few yards from the parking lot. Make sure you time the break just right, to get past the shore break on a big day can be real difficult!

Choss - What does choss mean?I guess it means howling offshores and still no shape. Plenty of swell here but no payoff for all the work. Surf the dunes instead.

Piping barrels - I've scored it pretty epic in the Fall. Get it when it is glassy with long interval swells. Great shorebreak...
