I know this place - it's just along the coast from Hosta - that must be it breaking at 20ft! I never thought that it could be surfed though. Any takers?

Its quite far along the coast from hosta, nobody surfing in the autumn/winter. Doubt this reef has been surfed but its surfable. The break is about a km away from where i took the photo and the little wave in the foreground is easily overhead. To the left there is a right reef that's full-on top to bottom barrels when the swells good but looks pretty deadly.

the honest answer is no. The next day was a more friendly size.
