Hey Black Bart - we don't want to come to Alabama. Yall can keep your inbreeding that's fine with us because your waves aren't that great anyways. Don't get butt hurt over some waves.

ITS BACK! - well, i have no clue what happened i guess because of the dredgine but the cross is back my friends!! although it is coming back it is still not up to its prior status. the inside still dumps like i said but when we got that big swell from wilma it was breaking big on the outside, its not as far outside as some breaks like the pier but i would stilll classify it as an outside. once you get past the shorebreak dumpers theres a huge channel with no midbreak and then you get ot the sandbar you cant stand up on it though its still lik eprobably chest deep with the deepest parts head deep and the shallowest maybe rib deep. on the first day of the swell, the swell was lke chest to overhead and it was peeling perfect tehre for a prett good ways, then on saturday and sunday it was straight up freight train barrels. it comes out of really deep water and then breaks good on that bar. hopefully it will continue to replinish its sandbars and we can have the cross back just like the good old days.
