There are a couple of areas to choose from here. The north side of the beach extends out into the ocean, creating a semi-point style wave with short lefts and long rights.

To the south there is a water outlet that can have some fun waves if the sandbars are in good shape.

Further down the beach the crowds thin but the wave quality diminishes.
