Creek is best on a high tide. The low tide makes mushy crappy outsiders which then dump on the inside. Middles can be very fun and long, but occaisionally youll have to pick and choose. It can get pretty dang hollow at all parts of creek and breaks best on pretty much any swells. There are a few rocks out in middles that you dont see in the high tide and most likely wont hit, but on the low tide you can see them. More of a trick place than a barrel place. Most of the time its crowded as can be, but if you get there really early, you can be out with only about 20 others spread out through creek and get lots of waves for yourself. But at about 7:30-8:00 is when the crowd starts puring in. I've had some epic days at creek, but it only gets like that on clean swells and good winds.
To surf it, you need to be good at pumping on waves. This is a fast wave and many times you need to have all the speed you can get.
