Few people surf this spot. Area in vicinity is used by local sport fishermen to catch carp and sheepheads. Has bathrooms for changing, and a concession stand in summer months. No beach, manmade rock piles only.
This spot needs BIG East or NE winds (over 30 mph) to work. Huge, powerfull waves. Watch out for rocks and boulders at end of ride.. there is no beach.
