this spot is usually best on a mid,incoming tide...its a fun wave up til about 2 ft overhead...anything bigger than that tends to close out...its best on northerly swells, but is also fun on southeast wind swells...the northern section of the beach around the 4th boardwalk has the best peak on most days...watch out for the locals, they can be nasty,so bring an awesome tude.
restaurants,businesses, and local surf shops well worth your patronage.
its usually very crowded on weekends, lots of beginners so be careful...during the week its not too bad unless there is a good swell
its the most consistent break in the area....tends to be mushy, but gets hollow on larger days...also has very good shape with lots of peaky and bowly sctions

Fun - Was there 3 days. Thursday awesome couple of people waves were small. Friday was a little better, more people. Sat. Packed waves were pretty big. Almost had a smack a B for being an a-hole. Overall had a good time. Last day kind of sucked.
