Make sure you dont go falling tide because you will have to walk back. No crowds at all , ultimate looner spot.

- I lived there my whole childhood, and my family still lives there, Berts is way better, 3rd bar broke maybe a handful of times a year, and the bars one the IOP side got good even less times than that. Not to mention I saw at least two drownings every summer from the undertow in the inlet itself, plus when you are out there, stingrays and sharks are only magnified bc you will be the only person out there, FAR from the beach. And if you are going to give it go, dropping to slack tides are the best, the currents are moving out to sea, and create rips that peak up the swells, and the sand bars are more exposed. NOT A BEGINNER SPOT, and not really a great surf spot anyway, maybe twice a year. Good if you're a windsurfer.
