It can be fun, but a little spooky. When it's big, there are barrels to be found... Best size:4-6
Heavily dependent on shifting sands - could be anywhere from nonexistent to very very good. When a good bottom starts to form, a local crowd develops - word gets out.
One of those waves you score a few times a year on a good size swell, not a place to check daily.

The water is dirty - This area is some of the dirtiest water. Dog feces beach. Come on, this place never tubes be serious. It barely breaks it so damn mushy you can barely catch it. Where are the people from who descibe the waves? Texas..

Run for the toilet - Surfed here and had a gnarly stomach ache and diareah for two days

Not so bad - Settle down, fellas! It does exist. On small waves, it's fun enough to get wet most days. From 3-6 feet it's a lot of fun. At 7+ feet you still won't find any tubes but it does give a nice fast ride after an easy takeoff - not as fast as Blacks but still fast. Tends to back off in the middle of the ride then come on hard again for the last section. Makes for nice variety. The easy takeoff makes it great for staying out until well after dark. Which is cool in the extreme with the red tide. Ever seen a surfboard with an afterburner? At 9 PM on a red tide, you will.
