- Rips / undertow
This break is pretty gnarly when the surf is good and its crowded. Works with large winter swells on a low tide. Beware of the stong rips because of the tide. Rocks in the line-up.

To the Local Fort Point Tool - Reading your comment makes me sick. I surfed there (15) years ago on a 6' to 8' day and the place is boring. Try surfing in some of the real spots up and down the cost. Your old, probably not that good of a surfer and masturbate frequently. The place is tourist spot, what are you protecting!!!

Just Stay Away - Look, I've tried to explain it to you dozens of times. This is our little slice of earth. If you want to work your way into the lineup you gotta show a little respect.

To be honest - This is why surfing off the coast of a metropolitan city isn't worth the time. This must be how Long Island surfers act as well, but I shouldn't generalize.
