The spot is between TC's and Portuguese Bend, closer to TC's. It's more-or-less on the San Pedro / Rancho Palos Verdes border. Access the same as TC's: Walk from Palms or take the trail down from the far west corner of the South Shores neighborhood. Alternate access: take the trail from below the bluff at the east end of the Ocean Trails development.

Heavily localized. Watch out for the rock in the left lineup.
Breaks on the same swells as KG's and Spunkies.
Be discreet and you might score.

- the so called locals here are push overs. dont let the PV vibe get to you its BS! Surf where you want when you want and all you will get is dirty looks and weak comments about how you dont belong! I dare anyone to tell me where I belong. I fight for my waves and I havent lost yet!

Yup, the wave is right in front of the "fort". Hope you got some waves out there from the local a$$holes!!!

- I went there today to check this spot. I am a bodyboarder from Kona, HI, but i now live in LA.
Can anybody confirm this with me? I think i got this right, but i am NOT sure.
Is Japs Cove right in front the fort that the locals built?
