This is a large right hand wave which only really breaks in winter. It can be hollow. The minimum water temperature is 20dgrees so you can wear board shorts, but you'll need to bring a longer board. This wave is for advanced surfer only best surfing up to 12 feet high. It's also hard to park your car.
