Just to clarify, this is not 'Boomer Beach' as the other reviewer says. This is known as 'Wipe out Beach' because of the shore break which rushes up the beach and knocks your feet out from under you. I spent many days in the nearby lifeguard tower being entertained by scuba divers rolling around in the shore break. If the shore break is strong you should consider crawling out on your hands and knees. Boomer beach is incorrectly called Breaker Beach here. I've lived here all my life and never heard of Breaker Beach.
