This spot can fire at the right time. You need to keep your eye on the wind right after a monster Noreaster passes. You can't paddle out to the spot b/c the currents will drag you out to sea or at best slam you into the Avalon rock jetty in deep water. In other words when the place starts working have a boat or ski with life jackets, trust me you'll need them.
