 Additional Information

Good point break just south side of the cape. Works only whent the sandbars are roght on a W or WNW swell.
this is mellow break with a few locals, no bad vibes really, just a bunch of longboarders enjoying themselves.

The cove is sheltered from N and NW winds.

when you get into the parking lot look south as well there are a couple good beach breaks as well, they're right there if you take a minute to look. the large monolyth is pretty cool to look at when you surf.

14 yr old ran over by boat - On July 7th, during an 8 to 10 ft swell, a 14 year old boy from Bend, OR was ran over by a dory boat while in the lineup and had his arm severed off. Though the boat captain failed to follow rules and signal his approach with a horn, no charges are being filed. Local media reports of the event are biased in favor of the rule breaking dory. A number of ideas are being discussed by officials to reduce the chance of another accident including the option of black-balling all surfers 1000 feet south of the cove in Pacific City.

How's this place in the Winter? - I spent some time here in summer 07, thought it was a great little wave for longboarders. How is it in the winter months (December - March)? Is it a blowout like most of washington and western canada?
