Surf Beach - White Shark Grubbin' - Yeah, I'm not too stoked about that attack that happened this morning (10-22-2010), even it was a sponger.

Just another place to really keep your eye out...if that helps.

Local Vibe - G-Deek and Josh Mann have to let you surf here first. Don't try to paddle out with going through them first. The plover guards will get you if they don't.

- Honestly I have never seen anyone surf this place. First you have to paddle out pretty far, second a local had his board shredded by a GWS. the surfer claims he spotted it to other times out there before rumor is it is a tracked GW from Monterrey. It's also cold out there, could it be a secret "surf spot" that is unknown? or does it just suck? Who knows I'll go out there soon and report back.
