SUCH CRAP that those among us are using there F@#cking west coast localism to try and keep areas like this private. There will never be the jammed line-ups on the great lakes like so many are scared of. We need to continue the traditions and educate those who deisire to learn this wonderful sport.

dirty waters - pollution pollution and more pollution!
not joking!
it gets good as far as lake standards but i dont know if its worth the water quality risk's-too bad
one of the few places that offer safe harbor in a hard NW gale

When does this place go off? - You must have to have one hell of a wind to get waves. How many people are actually in the water for this place to be a locals only spot? i would love to see pictures!!!

Just like ... - The Waimea of the Great Lakes for sure. If I had a nickel for every time I saw this place spitting out 2x barrels while the winds were screaming offshore, I could quit my job ...

Bring your big guns ... and your balls ...
