1st poster is right! - Has the potential to be one of the best waves in the area. That potential is not realized too often.

all meat - This spot is super fickle. Depending on the sandbars you can get nice long rides or some of the meatiest closeout barrels around. Almost got denyed on the paddle a couple times duckdiving relentless square barrels. Super fun bodyboarding spot if you dont mind some sand in your eyeball

Little OB - Open to the swell and the wind. Heavy beach break. It's kinda like a little OB, only it doesn't get good as often because the sand bars don't form as well or as often. Can be good->great but all of HMB is fickle, this place is no different. The Jetty is much more sheltered from the wind and much less punishing.
