Early spring, fall, and winter is best; not very crowded, best waves on Nor'easters and hurricanes, only locals, cool-cold-freezing water (34 and above) and all the lots are open for easy access. Have low expectations and you will be rewarded on a good swell. Holds up to about 12 ft on big hurri swells and nor'easters. Your log and your shortboard. Also have a wide variety of suits form a 6/5/4 for winter and a S/S fullsuit for summer.
Great, fun spot for anyone who is learning, or looking to charge and get barreled.

Good spot - Great pre dawn beach break. Known for it's Kooks be careful in larger surf. Sand bottom makes this a kook paradise. If you get there early enough there is always street parking. Fall and Winter is always free parking right in front of the beach. Breaks best closest to the Coastguard House and past lifeguard stand #6.
