The waves get larger as you go north towards the pier, during the summer months (and especially weekends) it's like a damn surfboard convention packed with surfers out in the lineup.. not even worth going out.
Great if it's not crowded, generally unless there is a storm the waves are small and tame. Great for longboards. There are some old guys who surf out there during the summer and it's advised to stay away from them. It's a basic beach break.
When it's crowded, dont go. Period. Otherwise it's a great little break. No stress, good form for the little waves they are and they get even better during a storm.

lezbos and old farts! - This is easily the worst spot in San Diego. I read a comment on here that said it is best to keep away from the old guys that frequent the beach. Don't worry about them, all they do is make alot of drop in and complain. Its the women that make it dangerous. Noisy too. I don't want to sit in the line up and hear about Talor and Dacoda's soccer game. Shut up!

OB Local - The Holy Grail of waves for bitchy lesbo's and other 'too cool for school' longboard/funboard entitlements. Plenty of attitude that is usually reserved for performance, but without the performance part. Just a bunch of people who think they're really hot sh_t while nevering executing a turn or maneuver. Surf at Blacks where the waves are real and any attitude is backed up with actual performance.
