From Atlantic Beach Bridge make your first right on park Ave. And next possible left goto Broadway and make a right and park at the end of the road. Beach access off of Eldorado St. Beach in West Atlantic Beach then Hike to jetty all the way to the west. About a 15 minute walk.

This is a really good bowl off of the jetty that will barrel sometimes depending upon the bottom condition. You ucan also surf the east Rockaway inlet some times on a big swell but be careful heavy currents on that side. The wave can be fun in the 3'-5' range but gets serious and fast once it gets bigger and starts lining up poutside the jetty.
I grew up surfing this spot and it is pretty baron during the off season as most people gravitate to Long Beach but the waves tend to be a little smaller but better defined with a handful of people in the water at best.. I love this place as it is home to me even 25 years later.
One of the few excellent lefts on an island of rights. The only other place that compares is West end 2 and surfing is not really allowed there anymore.

- from rockaway, I can see this wave in the distance rolling into the inlet on bigger days. I dont really know its current characteristics, but its true that its tough to get to. my advice: park your car in rockaway in the huge public lot that boarders the inlet. this lot seems to be at the most narrow part of the inlet, which has looked to me like a 3 minute paddle to the other side. once youre there, walk along the coastline/jetty and voila. The only reason I exposed this trick is because I despise tolls and restricted beach access. have fun and if anyone asks, this spot sux

- You can't find it. If you do find it, you can't get to it. If you do get to it, most likely the jetty will not be working and you're better off in Long beach. You have to check this spot 40 times before its good. The walk is literally 0.9 mile. Good luck surfing here. Oh and in summer, you have to park further than that and then sneak onto the beach.

non resident - If you are not a resident of Atlantic beach forget about trying ot get on the beach. I even tried bribing the 12 year old security gaurd. Long Island SUCKS ASS!
