Atmosphere

The rocks are a hassle along the cliff, so wear some nice bootys. Its pretty fun once you get out there, kinda spooky with the kelp and random boats passing by, im sure there are some lonley sharks too.

surfed it, not impressed - not sure what tide this place takes or what swell but I surfed it about waist to chest high and it wasnt much of a wave. it was a quick takeoff and a few pumps before it dumped on the inside. Am I wrong?
