Just park at Anderson St and walk down through the 20 million dollar homes that are known as the "Surside Colony" , keep walking till you get to the jetty, if the swell is right you will be stoked.

This spot is a great wave when the swell is correct. A good sized S/SW will get this place rebounding off of the jetty into perfect wedgey right handers. about 15 years ago this spot was way better and much more consistant but there are rumors that the army core engineers dredged the sand bars because they didnt want people comming within 100 yards of the jetty due to the fact that it is a military docking zone on the other side for big navy ships. Anyway if you get to surf here when everything is lined up you will have a great time on this wave.
This spot can be tough to get waves at, if they are hyping the swell and it is closing out at the major spots then this spot will probably be packed becuase it handles bigger swell pretty good.
The wedgey right handers I spoke of can be very shifty and you may end up chasing waves that you never really had a chance to catch, the best thing to do is just stay within 25 yards of the jetty or closer and you should have a lot of the peaks come to you, they allows indicate way outside and down the beach and within 30 seconds they look like they have travelled sideways up the beach to you. Really cool spot

Long Gone - This wave used to break during the 80's and early 90's but since the sand project is was ruined. Its never any good so dont waste your time going there.

They buried it - ...sorta. Mofatt Nichol extended the beach way out along the jetty as part of the local beach replenishment project so the entire bowl area is now shorebreak. However, there is still plenty of refraction from the jetty. All I'm gonna say is that Wedge may now have a weaker right-hander cousin up north during the right swell.
