 Informations supplémentaires

This spot is capable of giving you a 10 to 15 second barrel ride, and watch out for the Backwash.he current on a tide change will keep you padding full speed just to not lose ground, and the take-off is right behind the rock tip of the jetty. It is a must make, I have seen the results of failure including broken legs and serious lacerations. Not to mention broken boards. If you do make the drop and start down the line a few yards you have cleared the area where the rocks are in play, but that doesn't mean you are out of danger. The wave sucks out all the water from the beach just around the corner from the jetty, and often will end up sucking dry as it goes from perfect tube to a mutated warping triple faced beast that regurgitates its contents directly onto sand as hard as cement. Locals know before they go on a wave what this looks like and will avoid it at all costs, watching non locals get destroyed on the wrong wave can be anything from funny to horrifying. On a slack tide of the right height, no wind, and a very strong swell, then Sbar is at its friendliest, and still you wont get any off the peak. When on of the local crews is out they will politely smile and talk with you, but while you scramble to where you think the peak might be makeable they will be going 15 yards deeper then you can imagine and then they will make it dry. Its not that Sbar locals are rude they just want to go as deep as possible and will not suffer moving the peak out to a safer point just for the safety of others.

this place rocks - this place is super rad cause when there is swell there is usually nobody out here and everyone is really cool in the water. just another really fun, good vibes types of surf spot. most of the locals will just give you waves like crazy. another great thing is the current is usually really mellow when the swell is up, you dont have to paddle constantly to try and stay in position, dont even worry about it bro, just go and you will get so many waves its unreal. I love this place, good vibes, really cool people. Love it , Love it Love it, its pretty much what surfing is all about.

TPL? - Chill out dude just cuz you cant get a wave there doesnt mean you gotta bag on the locals. Respect the break, spongers have just as much of a right to shred there as surfers.

sand spit schmand pit - Hey guys, did I overreact by jumping off the pier to surf sand spit? By the way, I mean the Ventura pier. Heck fire, I didn't want to get caught inside bros! Long butt paddle, but well worth it. Ok, so it was flat, and in the middle of summer, but still rippable. Hey, my bus is here, I gotta go. Later.
