 Additional Information

Lefts and rights over rock reefs, lefts break at the south end and rights and lefts off the north end. The rights off the north are usually the best and most crowded. Walls out on big summer swells across an outside bombora. Lots of rocks at low tide, but not a dangerous break, very little power. Occasional tubes on the inside shorebreak.

Atmosphere

Mellow place to hang out. Lots of losers up in the parking lot but the beach between here and Leo Carillo is a fine stretch of sand with few people during the week.

Paddle out - The paddle out for Gorillaman was attended by over 40 people at Staricase along with a simultaneous paddle out in Hawaii, to pay their last respects to this soulful individual. Spanning 3 generations of Staricase surfers, the kind words spoken were an impressive tribute to a gentle soul who obviously had many true friends.

RIP Grills - The originl staircase head is gone, but forever alive in our hearts... who has seen the most staircase sunsets, who stood up for the shroom rats when they were getting beat, who travelled the world before travelling was "in", who was loved by all who met him, who made an impression on my life more than any other. Shine on you crazy diamond.

gorrilla - Another sad day on the homefront. This time we lost one of the founding fathers of the case. Our king "gorilla-man" has left the mortal surf scene for more consistent peace in the sky. Grills will continue to be the legend that he became, surfing and smiling his way into many hearts and souls. My first memories of G-man go back to about 1975 when the elder impressed me with his "progressive" ripping style. he had been surfing long before 75' and as recent as last week he was always out there ripping, and more importantly having fun and truly caring for the newer younger generation of up and comers. Never throwing any bad vibes around gorilla was a true humble legend and a genuine friend to all that were blessed enough to have him in their lives. His art was breathtaking and when he would receive compliments He would simply and slowly say "thanks dude" and get a huge Gorilla grin. Thanks Gorilla for all your kindness. You are already greatly missed by all the boys and girls.
