Only boat access, no protected anchorage. Must anchor outside break. High currents created by ebb/flow of San Diego Bay can drag anchors as evidenced by the boats that wash up every few months. Use extreme caution. No more than 3 surfers per boat, any more than that has been known to cause anchor failures. Near the tip of Point Loma one spot north of the Coast Guard and Ranger stations, south of sewage treatment plant outfall.

Come alone or with one friend max. Longboards without leashes only. Be ready to paddle hard or eat the cliffs behind you. Very easy to get caught inside, and once pushed onto the shelf it's too shallow to duckdive. Possible to get "stuck" at the base of the cliffs on a rising swell if unable to paddle out through large whitewater. If you're stuck it's a trespassing ticket plus the cost of rescuing your dumb ass.
Generally not heavy with a negative vibe unless your boat arrives with more than 2 surfers. Insta-crowds cause anchor failures. If there's already 5+ guys out, sit and wait for someone to paddle in before you paddle out.
Very fun left when tide, swell direction and period are perfect. If everything isn't perfect it is generally a very concentrated peak with a mushy shoulder, or on big long period swells it just closes out.

Kook Cords? - love watching all the guys who are too cool to wear a leash here swim the hundred yards into the rocky inside after their boards. Kook cord? Seems like you're just an idiot if you dont wear one. No matter how good you are, you'll always lose your board once in a while, unless you don't charge of course, which most of the cordless guys don't do

kooks - the vibe on here isnt the vibe in the water. i bet most the people talking crap like they are local havent surfed here before. this goes for many of the spot coments on this website. it isnt moderated, so anything goes. even misinformation.the only redeeming quality of this site is the pictures, not all but some. this site is very inaccurate

Too pissed off old loc! - The problem with guys like you is that you think your entitled to breaks because you surf there once in a while. The spot will never get to crowded cause its hard to access and if it is people will just boat on down to another spot. What happened to the Aloha spirit old timer? Its fun to share and surf with your friends, you would know if you had more than 4 guys that you think are lucky to hang out with you. People like Bill Andrews and Skip Frye live the aloha spirit why cant you. Not everyone is a disrespectful grommet and if they are they have something coming and these are the rules. I hate guys that act like there the locs and try and scare people with your bullshit. In actuality you guys just wish you could be Butchy V or apart of Mac media, but theres a reason your not...your a yuppy. Take it easy old loc you might have a stroke
