 Additional Information

When facing the beach, there are two sandbars that work on different directions,
The one on the left can give long, left 100m rides, just recently in chest high
conditions. The sandbar on the right works with south, even SSW swells and creates
long rights. In the winter, I like the Crest because its beach is line up WSW, and get
even get swell ith SW winds. Won't ever barrel unless overhead with perfect winds
and a tide that just turned from line and is coming up. Both sandbars wall up and
look like a closeout, but will hold face for a while.

Atmosphere

I described the crowd in the winter, because in
the summer the sand bars suck and surfing is
black-balled from 9-5. This spot like New Jersey
is fickle though. This Christmas, we got a
overhead wave, with howling offshores that just
barralled right through and was gone the next
day.
