 Additional Information

This is a heavy big wave spot. Paddling out is not recommended, due to the massive shorebreak. You need a jetski and plenty of experience. The main peak is about 1/4 mile outside of the shorebreak, you can spot it breaking from the cliffs above the beach. You're going to have to launch the skis at the beach(the nearest harbor is 5 miles up the coast) The take-off is pretty mellow, and and you can get a long ride if you know what you're doing. You'll probably be the only one out, sonce hardly anyone knows about this spot.

Atmosphere

Very beautiful scenery with fir trees lining the beach and the kelp beds just on the inside of the reef. Its pretty deep, so there is no need to worry about hitting the bottom. Its a powerful wave, and needs to be respected.
