Atmosphere

Best when big and connects all the way through Rancho and Arashi beach.

You can find some waves here even when Arashi and Rancho are flat. It's a good alternative for when you drove all the way to Rancho and it's flat but really wanna paddle out. I love this spot for longboarding.

I still go there - mostly when rancho is flat, and I'm already around there, and don't wanna go to Dunes. I think because of the rocks there are usually still 3-4ft waves and yea they are on and around rocks sticking out. Not great I agree, but I enjoy it still and ride my longboard there. Watch your fins though, can be pretty shallow.

a rarity - this place rarely breaks. and when it does most people will be at rancho. i had a great session here years ago when the swell came from a different direction(W instead of wrapping aropund the tip from NE) and the bottom was covered in sand carried by the waves. only 2 other people out. as a former windsurfer i knew this spot had potential for surf/boogy. but i rarely rode it because it's so fickle.
i love my boogy
...for life
