Good luck finding a spot, especially in the summer when the inland invasion begins. Early morning sessions are best for parking, beating the crowds and the onshore winds. Easy wave when it's small. Experience needed when it's pumping.
Very fun wave, one of the best spots in Newport on a good day. Localism isn't too bad. Just abide by the normal surfing etiquette and don't cut anyone off.
When it's good-powerful, hollow, and peaky. Awesome spot.

Watch out - Watch out for the locals!!! There is this one local reagan he is like the kai borg of newport. He is not afraid to pound some kooks. So watch out for him he is usually riding a giant Lost... board.

56th local? - If you live at 56th st. that means you rent and have moved here from up the 55. Figure it out.
