 Informations supplémentaires

Watch for high tide exits! Waves can push right against cliff wall making exits hazardous at best. To avoid the hell....paddle down beach to Privates or north to 38th St. Also watch for locals! There are some pretty agressive locals around here that want the spot on a pumping south. (which never happens, making them want it even more when it does)

Atmosphère

Fun spot.....bad vibe; VERY localized. Bad wave for longboards they arent allowed. If you take one out you'll probably get kicked out; shortboards only. Easy parking if you are lucky, otherwise might be walking a while. Nice spot to watch the waves from cliff edge after a good session.

Général

Dont surf here unless you're good, a local, or really know how to stay out of the way. If you DO suck, go to 38th (a short walk/paddle up the shore) or go to Capitola/cowells. Even if you're not a bad surfer, expect to get yelled at once or twice here.

Beginners - The flipside, following a nice, solid South swell in the 6-10 ft range:

BEGINNERS: please do not paddle out at the Hook, or at Sharks, on a swell over 4 feet. You are a danger to yourself and others, at sizes above that, as you do not yet know enough about where to be -- and where to not be -- which inevitably means you're going to be continually putting yourself *exactly* where you should not be. When it's over 4 feet, pick a different day. Any one who encourage you to do otherwise is not your friend, when it comes to surfing.

I saw so many clueless people who could *almost* surf a little, this week, bringing out others who should not have been in the water at all.

Your first priority is safety, and the second is not getting in the way. If you're a beginner, you don't yet know how to fulfill your obligations on either of those counts, and that's annoying but ultimately OK. It's just not OK in surf over 4 ft, when you should not be out at all (you will not get any waves, when it's good, and you can only be in the way and cause problems for others, not disincluding water rescue teams).

oh yeah - ...what I'd add to that is just that a little communication goes a long way. There's a basic spirit of cooperation, that people in cliques extend to each other, and that a lot of non-local people who show up regularly to surf Capitola from over the hill (or wherever) lack. One of the reasons they lack it is that they don't receive it from locals, so they have no real concept of what it's like to surf (position for waves, especially) in a cooperative way. If you constantly snake, and paddle directly at and directly in front of guys who have never experienced cooperative surfing, you can't really be surprised if they end up thinking that's how things are done. I'm 100% sure that a few of the worst offenders, as far as hostile and uncooperative spirit -- guys who show up at The Hook regularly -- have no idea that that's not how it's supposed to be done.

To Kook-ish locals - Been surfing the entire stretch from Privates to Rocky's about 5 months, now, every day, after being out of the water 20 years. I have had exactly 2 experiences with misdirected localism in that time, have never hit anybody, have not burned a single person (yes, I have missed a lot of waves in keeping my nose clean).

In both cases, where someone who considered themselves more local than me gave me some flak, it was actually the person claiming the local card that was in the wrong. No, I'm not deluded. Once, someone hit me in between sets, paddling out, and tried to make it my fault, afterward, somehow, and the other time some guy was having a bad day at the Hook and decided to blame me.

In both cases, compared to the other locals out, the person that complained was the worst surfer of all the established locals, and had terrible wave etiquette themselves (constantly burning others -- if I described them, everybody's know exactly whom I'm talking about, and would agree, "Yeah, that one's a clown").

This post's actually aimed at people like that: if you have a problem with someone you think isn't local, and none of the other locals have a problem with that person, it could be that the problem is actually you.
