park your car in frist car park , there is a big square rock you take off on . on low tide watch out your leg rope can get stuck when you take off the left is suckier then the right on low tide the right is easier to catch then the left.
The water is usually smoth when working no pollution yet yery asome when sunny no wind around.
Its my favorite spot in the area right now.
