General

One of my favorites when it's good.

Step challenging take-off (if you want it) followed by multiple opportunities to carve and come of the bottom!

Shut your fat slob tits - I surfed here in the 80's with legendary surfer Gary Platt. If you've got sac, go straight into the rock. I did it twice. Total rush. Jacked up my board though. Well, time to shinny on outta here. Joe Galonka for Mayor of Haleiwa. Tony Joe White Rules. P.S. Shut Hole.
