Nice wave near the estuary - Nice mellow longboard wave up near the estuary...good atmosphere in the water...nice way to spend the afternoon and work on the tan

- 5 awesome nights spent w/the locals. great meals inthe evening.BUT!! the fishing was unbelieved giant snook and roosterfish

Nice for beginners - Super crowded with longboarders. Nice -little- wave. If you want epic go elsewhere. If you want to chill out and dodge beginners and watch them freak out when a 6ft set wave comes through this is the place. I had fun, but I'm at the tail end of being a beginner. Nice town too.
