Week crowdFew surfers
Paddle hard and straight then take the drop, bottom turn and stall hard, watch and feel the wave as it peels over your body, shoot out of the belly and smack out a 360..or an ARS, but most of all just have fun,it dont matter how good you are......
The short paddle out to the line up couldn't be any easier, a small current just to give you that extra boost when getting out... as your laying there on your board be sure to study the wave and the shallow reef as it can nearly suck dry on a dropping tide... don't hold back when going for it, leg stall as hard as you can then ride the barrel for as long as you can for a smooth, great looking ride... be sure to look for the spectators sitting on the cliff when you do so!! Also watch the local bodyboarders, they're about 14 years old and they rip!
Great spot for experienced surfers / bodyboarders...definitely worth the effort, enjoy !
Lizards gets epic on a nice big full tide.
Low tide tends to only work on a small swell.
