The Cave in SE is an exposed point/rivermouth break that does not work very often Ideal winds are from the north northwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the south. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Take care of the strong rips here.
