Make sure when you go to Patricks you park in the southern parking lot, otherwise you'll end up paying for your session.
This spot seemed like a good place for beginning surfers to get there feet wet. While the waves aren't perfect and peeling, the had form and shape, letting some of the less talented groms get up and move a round.
Overall the spot seemed like a chilled and relaxed place if you want to surf with just a few friends. If you're looking for a spot to get away from people during the week or only see a few locals on the weekend, Patrick's is the place to go for a few fun waves

Fun but sharky - Surfed Patricks twice, nice sandbar break. Saw sharks both times. One was about 5 foot, Spinner hanging around in the shallows for twenty minutes or more.
