When you get the right wave at this spot it throws out. Lots of boxy pits. plenty of fun. Usually a pretty late drop, then pull up quick for the pit - get spat and then some waves will line up on the inside.
There's also some pretty wedgy lefts. The place is real shifty.
Look out for the GWIBs (Genuine Westside Inbreds) they'll be out when it's good. The place stinks like a sewer (like most of the westside does)
I think theres a pig farm in land a little ways

Fickle perfection - Ranches gets crowded now, even on weekdays. The boulders rolling around the shorebrak seem to keep the fainthearted on shore, but the perfect rights are hard to resist. If you dont live there, be polite and watch your car...
