 Additional Information

ok spot, it is usually junk but it has its days. because it is a deeper water break it doesnt always work. when the tide is right, and the swell is a nice size, which is about 3 feet. any bigger, and it breaks outside with really fast, death closeouts. sometimes however, there are really nice long rides on days like this. BUT! when it is nice, its nice. perfectly clear water, glass. pits everywhere, nice powerful lips. if you are lucky, they double up on the inside sometimes, and you can catch that, get pitted SUPER hard, and pull a huge air off the bowl.

This spot is LAME - ALWAYS ONSHORE AND CLOSING OUT! The reason it's uncrowded is cuz it SUCKS!! Im finished with checking that spot anymore.

Don't believe da hype - I've been surfing da place for 20+years and it's rarely good. Too many factors have to come together. always windy and the tide ruins it. closes out too much.

By Anonymous , 19-04-2008

ugly - rarely clean, crappy and ugly which is why it is empty. when bigger like 6 ft. local scale, it can close out easily if the direction is wrong. also has sharks. not worth it, diamond head usually has better shape. usually not worth the paddle.
