It's been quite a few years but I got it in the 4-6' range with one day semi maxing(breaking way into the bay) When I was there the wave broke with a fairly thick take off that quickly led to a short shoulder that wrapped pretty tight around the point( lots of bottom turn to cut back over and over ) the beach breaks in the area were pretty overwhelmed by the swell and not an option I wanted to explore. Went to Punts Saladita which was much better but a bit wind sensitive. Long roping lefts with a defined " top of the point" but many pick it up farther down the line. Got some epic lefts, followed some fellow traveling surfers the the Ranch but it was big and burley so I passed ymmv

Only surfed the beach, pretty average bb. I heard the point is a longboard wave unless huge.
