Paul D'arco from United States
“Quit bitchin' 'bout's a healthy ecosystem with Osprey and Eagle nests, lot's of tropical fish when summer current comes inshore. Horseneck is pop up peaks with nothing to write home about. The good surf is fast-rolling right on east side of breachway w/ strong s/se swell and w wind; further east is mysto west-facing reefbreak outside of S. Dartmouth needing e winds or glass! Access from Lloyd Demsarest park and mile paddle or boat from Westport River harbor. The biggest wave rideable on ALL the east coast is 1 mile west of here, Breyton Point in all it's glory...You can catch a rare big S/SE peak outside in Massachusetts and Uluwatu-style barrel all the way to Little Compton in Rhode Island! When 2-4', lot's of protruding rocks, but fun right SW longboard sliders................access.impossible with gay beach club patrons chasing away victims or 1 mi walk from Goosewing.”
