 Additional Information

Park your car out of the way because you'll be leaving it unattended for awhile. It's eaisier to pack your stuff down than to repair your wetsuit. The trails here are muddy and the bushes are thick.

Atmosphere

If you are a longboarder and like your stick I'd pass on this break. If the trail down doesn't ding your board to hell, the elevator drop at 3rd beach will more than likely cause a stress fracture or you will drill the nose while pearling It's that steep of a take off! In fact I would argue that this spot (on most days )should be reserved for spongers the darn wave jacks up into a nice teardrop barrel then backs off totally giving one the best acid drop take offs a mushy come down...Now remember I said "most" days on the other days this place rivals Seaside, OR for punch if not length A big day the can reach faces of 25 ft plus turning a steep cove beachbreak into a firing monster point I've seen waves rip huge pines off the cliffs.. tossing them like toothpicks into the soup!

longboard the wedge - I've surfed there several times with a longboard. Yes, the hike is muddy and slippery, but if you have a decent board bag, you will be fine.
Also, the drop can be steep, but you can surf the shoulder. I've surfed all over that wave with a 9' longboard.

Give it up - THis place has no locals unless you are from the tribe...just surf it and shut up.
