I was on it pre dawn yesterday with just a handful of people. no hassles, everyone got set waves. 1 hour later there was 30 to 40 guys fighting for the same waves. santuary quickly turned to chaos.
I don't get the mentality of paddling out to a spot that has reached capacity. Just watch the break for a few minutes before you decide to paddle out. If there are 5 wave sets every ten minutes and more than 5 surfers sharing that peak. Don't paddle out there, go find another peak! It's like a deer hunter setting up a tree stand on the same tree that another hunter has been sitting in for an hour.
