Atmosphere

This spot can ge packed but then other times there is no one there. Also there is only one spot to catch the wave and its by the rock or along the rocK (YOU WILL SEE WHEN YOU GET THERE).
During the winter of 2007 a large section of cliff fell off and now is submerged , reaching clear to the surface , visable at low tide . There is also a large submerged rock at the point and one toward the beach on the cliff side . Use caution when bodyboarding .

Another Sponge Warning - To the "Regulator" sponger I think he needs to redefine what history is. This spot used to be a gathering spot for bodysurfers until it was taken over by the spongers. The spongers have no claim on this spot and I surf it whenever I like. The only vibe I've ever seen from a sponger was a scared vibe as I gave them the evil eye. The whole thought of you guys talking about "regulating" us who like to go out for a surf there every once in awhile makes me laugh.

warning to spongdoyle - I have been surfing the cove since 1984 and haven't had any problems spongers.To hear that the spongers are going to regulate is a joke,hey doyle why don't you go boggie at cals.See you in the water.
