Wave quality suffered substantialy after Hurricane Julliete. Sand from arroyo flow covered reef. Little more than a glorified close-out. With the elimination of El Tule and very few spots in the area, it gets crowded quick. If you expect this wave to work at 6 foot forget it!! Gunna needs to be 8-10 closing out before this place even starts to break properly. I have surfed it oon huge swells at 8-10 foot and believe me its a wave for the brave. Awesome water movements and dropps that take your breth away. Thsoe that posted here at only 6foot and bag the wave have not surfed it in the right conditions. Its a big wave reef/bay and needs huge swells. other wise go surf Port phillip bay and bag that!
Very intense localism. The gang mentality is alive and well. If you enjoy riding behind someone who has all the style of a Rhesus monkey on crack, this is the spot for you. If you complain, the trouble starts and it can get ugly.
Used to be a fun wave. With the dramatic drop in quality and the ever increasing crowd pressure, I would pass unless you want to practice your 1 on 20 fighting skills.

Gang - There is a gang always surfing there, dont even try to yell at the guys dropping on you, you might end up in the hospital,or worse.

Loser - There is a big fat local bodyboarder named "bulldog" here. If you are smaller than he is, he will want to fight you. He is a jerk and a "puerco".

stupid kids - Rode zippers several times before it got hammered. Got it on a doh hurricane swell and it was scary good (but getting out the water at the pounding beach break was scariest). Also surfed it at chest high and kids blatantly kept dropping in on me...totally unnecessary and ruins the sesh for everybody (I'll stay on your tail the whole way, so you can't cut back). It's a lot like malibu in that respect. Only way to surf it may be when it's big, just to thin out the pack and get rid of those shitty groms.
