Inconsistent right point next to UCSB requiring big W swell. Excellent quality when it breaks correctly. Handles as big a swell as the ocean can provide, the bigger the better. Fast, hollow sections and long rides when it’s on; mushy, slow, and weak when it’s not. The inner peak is called Poles and is popular with grommets and longboarders. Lower tides are generally best. Always crowded with students.

Access is by parking in the coin-metered lot adjacent to the point (make sure you have coins if you go).
