English (Traduisez ce texte en Français): Parking can be difficult to impossible in Newport, especially when there is a solid swell. Remember, a large portion of the surfing industry is in the Costa Mesa, Central Orange County area, these are people who get paid to know when the surf is good!

English (Traduisez ce texte en Français): The Point has an almost mythical reputation. This is the spot featured in the famous Surfer Magazine article &quot;The Day Pipeline Came to Newport.&quot; The name is somewhat misleading, Newport Point is not really a point break, but anybody that has ever surfed it during double overhead or bigger huricane generated conditions will tell you that it's not an average beach break either. Take offs are STEEP with thick tubes to follow. Choose wisely, as this spot is well accustomed to snapping boards. On smaller days you will think that you have found tuberider heaven. The wave is short and intense and good barrels here will leave you grinning like a jackass eating thistles. Once it gets over 8 foot faces it becomes a whole different animal. Looking into the throat of one of these waves may make you forget where you are and for a second and you may think that you've been magically transported to Pipeline, Off the Wall or Puerto Escondido. While it can get really, really crowded on big days, one will find that the majority of surfers in the line up are second guessing their ability. It's HEAVY, and much meaner than it looks from the safety and shade of lifeguard towers 18 or 19, but for those that are willing to take off steep and deep, the rewards are some of the best barrels of your life. Guaranteed.
English (Traduisez ce texte en Français): The Point is really a special wave to me. I have been surfing for about 14 years and have scored much better waves, in cleaner, warmer(and colder) water in many places all over the world, but there's something about my home spot. A tube ride here means more than a great ride at some other spot. Maybe it's just because I've paid my dues, heavily, at this spot. The Point has snapped so many of my boards in half and has body-slammed me into the bottom more times than I can count. Maybe it's because I have heard stories from so many good surfers of insane waves at places like Tavarua and G-Land, and then have those waves compared to the barrel at The Point. And maybe it's the unique, shy and quiet history of a spot that is so much better than everywhere else from Trestles to Lunada Bay and yet gets minimal publicity. No, I know exactly what it is: It's those incredible mornings when I have woken up to a new 6 foot swell, before the word is out, and paddled out at The Point, alone, and caught waves with no one else in the water, laughing at how sometimes you can score empty, quality waves in the middle of one of the most crowded places on the planet. Looking back at the beach at the occassional person walking by on the beach with a metal detector thinking &quot;Little do they know that I have already found the treasure. Sometimes you just get lucky.
English (Traduisez ce texte en Français): This spot is world class, and while it's no secret, if you're lucky, you may score really good waves all to your head.

My only experience with this wave - There was a small hurricane swell several years ago so I went to the point one afternoon to see if anything was happening. It wasn't actually working (so I thought) but the shorebreak was at least rideable so I went out for awhile for the hell of it. I was about to nod off sitting on my board when suddenly this head high set comes out of nowhere and just unloads on me. The wave wasn't the least bit intimidating in appearance being only 5 feet but it had ridiculous power for its size. The guys who have surfed it at DOH and TOH definately have balls.
