When you enter the town head north past 1st street and once you get to 1st street head to the beach. Waverly is about a 3/4 north of 1st street. Head north and you will pass a few steps leading ot the beach. There is a sign of the street lamp in front of the steps that lead to the break that says Pray for Surf.

Super crowded when its good. When its real big the crowd thins out. DONT surf the jetty unless your really good or have surfed there before. ALSO: bring a shortboard because us locals hate it when people longboard here, unless they go out farther on the jetty.(where the waves are longer and break slower)This break has had distruction from storms in the 2009-2010 winter, but it is getting whipped back into shape. should be perfect for summer after a good NW storm whips it into shape.
Once in a while there will be a really localist local that will come and take all the waves. Don't say anything to them because they just want you to be miserable. Other locals keep them off your back and will stand up for the non locals(shoobs). Also a key to staying away from them is going out further on the southern jetty. there is no current there and there is a hollow sandbar break that nobody touches. just watch out for skate fish(stingrays with a big barbed tail). They are rarely there anyway and are scared of people so you should be fine. I am a local down here and I've surfed here scince i was 8. I'm currently 14 and still ripping here. pack up your go-pro camera and get down here.... because 3 out of five days it's firing. bring your shortboard, funboard, and step- up shortboard if there is a big swell. in late august it wouldnt hurt to bring a gun or big wave board. it gets pretty pumping with the hurricanes. It's like a nj steamer lane.
Fun gets some good waves but dont go crazy. it gets to be about 6 foot once every 4 days in july,august and through winter.

- the geotubes trashed the break. it totally sucks now. dont surf it unless you want to battle out little turds, crusty loggers, and a host of full on kooks from PA for a craptacular wave
