Watch out for long sets a few feet bigger than typical waves for the day. LONG Paddle on big days.
One of the best beach breaks in the world. Holds up to any size with the right wind and swell, but the paddle out is may be impossible. The paddle on a 10 foot day may take 20-30 minutes.

kelly's cove and sloat the best anyway - my car got broken into again here at Pachecho St. for the third time this year. I even had an alarm on this one and nobody seemed to pay any attention as 'whoever' cleaned it out with my wallet, stereo, paperwork and cd's. They even took off with my clothes and car keys so I was totally screwed. All that for mushy, blown out crap and ten guys on a peak after a 45 min. paddle out.The day before I had two sessions on the same swell, one at Kelly's and one at Sloat, both perfect and a much easier paddle. Even the crowd was friendlier, especially at first parking lot Kelly's. Guys were just giving me perfect waves. Take my advice, skip the middle. The surf's at the ends.

Consistency - This is why I set up the Surfpulse camera right over the Noriega Street intersection. That way all the westside boyz can see when it is breaking in front of my apartment, and come join in the fun!
