Week-end crowdUltra crowded
Locals rip off all the tourists here, so lock your car.
There are waves every single day, atleast longboardable. There are many peaks so the crowd is spread out. Be wary of the rocky areas, especially by Brown's and inside Lighthouse.
If the surf is small, there's always SOMETHING to surf at Cliffs. The wave isn't anything world class so don't get snobby. The wind can get very annoying when over 15 mph.

Lighthouse rules - I surfed the lighthouse lately and even though its windy I still love it, When the tide was shifting it got weird and chunky mush on the inside, I saw a bunch of dudes out at cliffs and I was thinking what are they doing over there, the other break is so much better?

- Good spot. Wind tends to mess it up and there are alot of different peaks that break all over the place. The people that surf here are not to bad and less amateur then south shore. The biggest thing you have to watch out for is the shallow reef when riding a wave in. Just try to minimize your impact if you fall. Never fall down head first here!

Lighthouse Bowl - The pic of lighthouse bowl states that it is rare to catch it like that, thats false. Lighthouse goes off like that all the time, maybe not everyday, but enough to make it worth checking when the wind is light. Lighthouse has a killer bowl with a spinning right when its on, not mushball like the cliff side. The left can get real good as well and hollow. The crew at lighthouse has it wired and longboarders are not well tolerated unless they know the boys. Best on the low tide, S,SW,SE or W wrap. Always something breaking anytime of the year. Not for kooks or anyone who doesnt like shallow reef breaks. High performance rippable wave. Paddling in can be tricky--lots of people get drydocked on the reef on low tides. Good town spot, sometimes can catch it going off with only a few guys. Like I said if you cant surf good, you wont catch many waves there. The boys will shut you down, and you'll be watching everyone else get waves. If you can surf, show some common courtesy and figure out the line-up--you'll have a good time.
