Various reef/sandbar peaks, best with lower tides and smaller, peaky swells. Boils at low tide, vicious backwash at high tide. The beachbreak to the north can provide a lot of elbow room if Tarpits itself is crowded. The beachbreak can be hollow on a mid to low tide. A fun summer spot.
Carpinteria Creek may transport some unwanted pollution into the line-up, especially after rain.
