Fun if conditions are right Nov 19, 2008
Only been here once, a little bit after high tide, so conditions were a bit mushy. Waves were 3-5ft. Can see how it would get a little bit better if the waves were bigger, and at lower/medium tides.
Skill level was pretty varied here, and it was a bit crowded. One guy with a huge orange longboard was ditching his board whenever any wave came. I was paddling out behind him (big mistake) and basically had to duck dive his loose board. Some other people yelled at him too. You shouldn't be surfing at a place where you can't hold onto your board...
Getting in and out is a bit of a challenge (especially if you are used to beach breaks). Basically, you can jump off some rocks next to the cliff to get into the water. But you gotta time it right so you have time to get away from the rocks before the next wave comes. Getting in is similar. There are some ropes next to the cliff/rocks that you can grab onto to help.
