Its a great spot to get away from the crowds at south scripps (in front of the parking lot). The rides aren't as long but there faster, hollower, and more powerful. During bigger swells (7-8+) it becomes very shallow, don't paddle out unless your experienced. be prepared for late drop-ins.
This spot is great when its working. Be friendly to the locals and you'll get some waves.

Great spot. - Hey, I'm Mike, from La Jolla and I love this spot. It's so beautiful and magical. I work as a part time writer for privatewriting.com and after surfing I love to relax on the beach while writing.

- When its 2FT everyone and their mom, brother, sister, sister in law, dog and friends are out here but when it gets head high or higher everyone dissapears...weird. this spot is real fun when its good. when summer comes around its not worth the headache
