General

this spot is a fun spot to teach somebody to surf, but on a tropical storm it could be epic here

Longboard Fun - Sometimes there is a really long break there, used to be better unsure as of how it is now. Public parking/bathrooms, great for small waist high days. A bit on the sharky side due to the brackish channel, also strong undertow at times with rip.
