 Additional Information

This spot is really just for small spring and summer days with low winds. It can be fun with a bit more size, but the paddle out becomes super hard. Sometimes a fairly good right will form right off the rocks on the north side, but I wouldn't count on it. There also tends to be a weak long shore current that pulls you south.

Atmosphere

Most of the time this place will look worse then it really is. Most everyone will pass this place on their way to other more crowded spots, while you an a couple of friends will trade off waves in fairly good surf.

Only good without wind - This is an open beach break with no wind protection. It tends to catch the overflow when Short Sands and Indian parking lots are full.

Wind is the enemy. On those rare, windless days, this place has potential like any open beach break. But those days are few and far between. There is also a strong southerly current that you have to fight against to stay on a peak if you find one that works.
