Swell angle often dictates whether the longer rights or hollower lefts will be better and powerful tubes appear on the good days. May seem a bit easier to get out when the swell jumps and the jetty rips can help avoid a pounding. Handles all tides and a bit more swell than the open spots just to the north before closing out beyond the jetties. Better chance of scoring outside of summer, when crowds can be crazy.
A very central area to check the surf, with waterfront parking spots, surf shops and restaurants. Lifeguards monitor a swimming area along the right jetty in summer, which further reduces the surfing zone.
