Checked it out - I was in the area and made an exploratory trip down to this spot. I parked in the back of this cemetery and then had a long (~2 mile) walk which took me past multiple 'no trespassing' signs and over lots of rusty scrap metal in the rocky beach. When I got out near the point I sat for a while watched a few nice sets of barreling lefts roll through, took some pictures, then hiked back to cemetery. It was dark when I got back and found my car locked in the cemetery. Sweet.
I'm going to try and find an easier way to access this spot, because it has really nice break, but it's a bit of a hike from the cemetery.

Elwha - Surfed the stump alone with DOH sets from 8am to 4pm this past winter...amazing wave...

delta or kirra???? - Thanks for the reply. I concur that an unrestrained flow will probabaly cancel out the waves (by creating a huge shallow delta), however it could benefit Pt. Angeles by filling it in with a sandbar ala Kirra. Then again, like you said, even less swell gets in there. Is it true that Elwha is packed on most days? Since I moved away i heard its become a freakin zoo.... But even in the heart of winter? Hard for me to imagine ...
