Be respectful to the few locals who surf this dangerous break. You can tell they are local if they are surfing in and around this break. If you short board, bring a backup longboard for when it gets too fast. Big equals fast.
When you are in the thick of this massive break, you can feel quite small. Careful of sharks and violent porpises. I have yet to see or know of any locals paddling out in 10 foot swell there, so if you have a deathwish, this is your spot.Just think, you might get a good left.
Local gem and danger. Use extreme caution when deciding the right tise and drift. You could be sucked out to sea quite easily.

Shoales beware! - i went out to shoales on Ernesto. My tities were barrelled off. Unless you WSI certified or can outswim michael Phelps, dont go. If you do go... where a speedo.. locals give mad respect in jerz for a hot speedo.....anyway this spot rocks.. if your charge shoales successfully locals give you a tin of skoal.... Rock on Bruthas...... Localswell.com.
