 Additional Information

this wave is shifty, like the outer reefs off oahu hawaii. unless your some wierd guy whos seen it break lots of times, you wont know where the next big set will break. ive seen this place get hollow, and you can get easily caught inside if you dont know what your doing. prepare to get worked.

Atmosphere

this place is spooky. your quite aways from the beach, and usually when its big enough for this place to have some shape and size, theres not too many people surfing county. big waves shifting everywhere. bring a friend so you wont be so scared.

General

ive only seen this place break kind of good once. takes a big swell to make this place work. most days though on a medium sized swell, there will be waves slowly rolling over the reef, maybe feathering but never breaking. occasionally, looking at it from the lineup at county, you'll see a wave break, and crumbly down. most days, this wave is mushier thatn mashed potatoes.

YOU GUYS GOT IT WRONG - You guys got it wrong. That pile of rocks south of County Line is not the Bombora. The Bombora is 1/4 mile out and starts breaking at 8-10 feet. It is a left that is unsurfable due to the kelp beds.

Not worth the paddle - It DOES break. A friend & I surfed it on longboards on a day when staircase and county were big, but sucky (usual). It had a fun drop, with a great view of the rocks 2ft below. After that it mushes out into deeper water so bad that our 9'6"s would bog. Fun drop, but not worth the 1/2 hour paddle.
