First southern swell of 2013. This place is known for it's incredible break off the jetty which forces the wave to almost double the height. Body surfers and body boarders rule this place. There is a time set for Surfboards. Flags on the lifeguard stands determine what is allowed at any particular time. Yellow flag means experienced only with proper equipment. if it's a yellow flag with a black ball , that means body surfers and body boarders only. Red flag means very big and rough surf. Video was taken with an iPad 3 with telephoto lens on a tripod and an iPhone. I use to body surf this place in 1960. Very erratic wave when it gets over 12 feet.
