I've surfed beachbreaks heavier than this.

I have to agree with him. I've surfed that size and shape, and I'm a pussy, lol. Damnit, a foot smaller I've surfed with rocks sticking out in front of me! I've had to bottom turn around a rock sticking 1ft out of the water at a foot smaller than this. (If it is this big, the rocks are far from a problem.) Sharp and shallow or not, it's a walk in the park.

i agree. definitely not true backdoor. but remember, there are coral heads at backdoor and its shallow. looks fun though. the entire pipemasters was a cakewalk this year. portugal was heavier.
