once every decade - I've gotten this place a few times reeling off the south end of the boat. Takes a few big storms to make the right sand bar...then it's on for about a week...

Its Ehhh - Sea Cliff sucks, of all the times ive been there, surfing, boogie boarding,family parties etc. The only big waves ive seen were late into the day around sunset and they would crash right on shore, build up 3 ft and boom straight down into the sand

Eh..it has its days..but not many - ive been going to seacliff sence i was born..family thing but it almost never gets any waves your best chance is to pray for even the smallest swell to hit it or get up hella early like around 3 cuz thats when most of their waves are rolling in. Ok spot to teach begginers thou.
