Difficult to leave when the surf looks like this but my arms and legs were like noodles by noon. Light winds and a smallish long period swell provide optimum conditions around head high. Bigger swells are hit and miss here. Sometimes it handles it well, more often there is too much water moving and a difficult/dangerous paddle out.
