blown out - usually ugly anyway with the sideshores. its rare a big south with a good angle with the right tide and winds hit this area anyway.

radicals - Used to be owned by a rad dude named Nathan Wilbur, Radicals doesn't even exist anymore, hurricanes Iwa and Iniki did something to it so that it doubles up and closes out all weird. I surf that area a lot and I've gotten one good wave at radicals in the last ten years. It used to get super good but never over head high. Anywayz, radicals is gone R.I.P.
