When this place breaks it is as fun as it gets in St. Augustine. Its like a baby wedge, steep, fast,and fun. It is pretty shallow so if you eat it you be in the shells. It only breaks when the tide is coming in.
This place is a spongers dream when it breaks. If you have a strong swell and hit it when the tide is coming in you have a chance to try stuff you won't get to try many places in FLA. There are some locals around put other than the rednecks most of them are cool.

I have scurried arount vilano - Good place to catch a vault but there is too many kids out there that cant even duck dive and well the exp. ones know what that means less wave for us and more of a chance to shred boards. but if you get out there when its really goin good you can catch the whole high school group out there and you can bet on the schools bein closed for that day! so definitely give it a try worth the trip if your patient and let some kids try it as well dont be a wave hog and ass far as sharks its the ocean but there mostly south at the St Augustine beech pier....
