SURF HERE - Dude, I live out here on the island now, just got here before the big nw swell arrived. Dude this place get big.Its breaks the sickest right. It a heart felt ride ,chance to get barreled to. This place is no joke when it get big out. Ive seen 30+ sets role through. If its 15 feet in cal its 25 out here. Dude this place gets big.I hear all this stuff about dont come on the island because of secruity What ever. Secruity out here does nothing about it most of the time.Unless something big is goin down out here. Well send me a email if your coming out and i can tell you whats goin on out here so you dont waste your time sailing out.

response to urchindiver - it is called west cove,im guessing that it was named terminals because the air terminal is close by. yes this wave is very heavy, i have seen some old surfer magazines with mike parsons and brad gerlach towing in on 30 to 40 ft. faces. they called the place isla cojonos in the magazines. they heaviest wave in california? heavier than mavs or shark park? i wouldnt exagerate it that much bro, but it is definetely up there.

wtf - when did this place get called terminals?? This is west cove. Ive been a longtime commercial urchin diver and have been surfin west cove for years with no problems. Saw security kick some private boaters out but they never giv us problems. This is the HEAVIEST wave in california. Comparable to heavy hawaii. I have surfed this place 4X overhead on my 9ft gun.Cant believe they even roust you navy boys
