Don't go in the water when it is big. You will get your ass kicked! Pros only when it gets big. Watch out for jellyfish that blow with the tradewinds.
Nice friendly crowd most of the time. No standup surfing when the lifeguards are around.

Good fun, dat one - Howzit grom. Hell yeah, the current can be strong. Problem is many tourists get mesmerized by the scenery, and for some reason, many (not all), can handle the wave size, but aren't prepared for the rips and wave acceleration caused by the narrow bay. I don't care if anyone wants to risk their life, it's their own...just make sure relatives don't try to sue the city afterwards (our schools need funding). So many times at so many breaks/scenery points, has this happened. Anyway, be careful here for a while. Someone just committed suicide (or maybe an accident) here. He fell or jumped or something off the cliffs above, and sharks were spotted feeding on his carcass. The sharks of the area may or may not now enjoy human flesh. Anyway, be careful.
