Spot used to be ultra low-key, but now it's pretty much packed whenever it breaks. Due to this fact, I have no reservations about showing pictures of it here. The fact is that this is a heavy wave, and doesn't break all that often... so if you are not a local or do not know exactly what you are doing, please don't surf here. Its easy to get jacked here, one way or another. It's called 'Deadman's' for a reason...
Some days you'll see fifty + guys out here (and not because these pictures are online). The Deadman's of old is over- it's pretty much become a mainstream spot now. But as you can see, it still has its quiet moments...

RIP deadmans - ive been surfing here for what, 5 years now? deadman's sucks. yeah go ahead and say i'm just some unhappy local or a kook, i dont care. most of the guys who paddle out can't even make the drop, and yet they're out here acting like hot stuff cause they surf "the secret wave". you want to surf a good wave? go to OB. these stupid novelty waves like deads and ft point are ridiculous. go surf a real wave at ocean beach, get a real barrel. deads (and eagles) are just kook waves at this point, in the last few times i've been out i dont think ive even seen anyone get a sick one. guys paddling out on wavestorms, give me a freakin break. deadmans is about as mainstream and kooky as bolinas.
all of you other "locals" who call people out, get over yourselves. im tired of bothering with all the kooks out there, whats the point in "protecting" a wave that just sucks to begin with? it's a take off with a small shoulder, over some rocks. it just makes you idiots look even worse than the kooks, freaking out about a crappy, overhyped wave.
if you wanna surf around here, find a wave thats actually worth it.

flock dat sit - Worst ever. Haven't even checked it since '94 when there were already 50+ guys in the water, less than 5 could even make the drop. The best place to find agro's and kooks. I'm suprised I haven't seen anything about people being airlifted out yet. Mostly pure puss-bags and idiots surfing a classic wave. If you have any skill at all do yourself a favor and find an empty sandbar at OB or come to the real NorCal.

how lame - how can a wave that breaks about 10 times a year have any locals? say hi to me the next time it works, i'll be the guy in the black wetsuit with the white board.
