First, you park your car on the parking lot which is easy to find. The wave breaks right in front of the lifeguard stand, and considering that it's a beachbreak the point varies depending on the swell direction. You can choose were to surf in one of the peaks, since you could find 2 of them. TO surf it well you have to be ready to pay duty or break your board, and accept the challenges that this powerfull break demands. Your stand has to be fast considering the fact that the wave gets really hollow and ledgy. This wave is powerfull and abstain from it unless you have your balls real tight and you are willing to respect the locals, I mean, US.
The atmosphere in this place can vary depending on the type of intruders. Agressive intruders will be seriously punished and possibly left for shark bait. However, respectfull intruders will get a chance to surf a couple of waves as long as they continually respect the locals. On some days it can be hot with many people on the beach and fun swell size, but other days it can get cloudy with no one out and close out sets ready to demolish.
A spot with great waves, and abundant barrels. It's definetely worth the trip, you will get good waves as long as you follow this three words: RESPECT US LOCALS...
