An excellent, powerful big-wave left wedge. Needs sizeable W-NW swells; breaks up to triple-overhead. Experienced surfers only; big-wave boards are a must. Can get fun on smaller days but really comes alive when it’s big. Gets extremely crowded and competitive. Lots of moving water and strong currents. The wave ends in severe shorepound. Usually some bad backwash, especially on high tides, so it’s best with a low. One of the county’s few big-wave arenas. Never closes out.
Located in front of the Chart House restaurant, on the north side of King Harbor. Park at the Chart House (pay) or along a nearby street.
