Atmosphere

This spot is easily effected by wind and other conditions. Usually only good on nice sunny days with no wind. If you ever catch this place on a good day you can thank your lucky stars you are in for a treat. Very nice veiw of california's most beutiful stretch of coast. My most favorite session of all time was had right around the corner from the parking lot.

General

I love and hate this spot because I usually am surfing alone. And if I see this spot going off and no friend with me I usually pass it up.
