 Informações suplementares

4-Mile is one of the more consistent spots north of Santa Cruz. Well protected from the wind, it begs for big crowds on windy small days when nothing else is really doing it. On small to medium sized days the paddle out is a pretty easy walk out to the end of the point, jump in and paddle over to the peak. The more adventurous do this on the bigger days, but this technique is not suggested for the first timer. on lower tides the place has two distinct take -off zones with the inside bowl generally unmakable from the outside as well as generally a better wave. Very round on the take off, the wave hugs the reef all the way into the inside and is a fairly easy surf both front and backside.

Ambiente

Most of the boys surfing this spot have been surfing it for a couple of decades at least. The crowd is friendly, while competitive, to its own. Outsiders may feel less at home, but will still get a few waves. What makes 4-mile a special place is the atmosphere out of the water. In what has become known as "the oven", an area protected by the large cliffs that ring the spot, surfers, significant others, families, dogs, etc... congregate. It is hardly unusual to see students studying while boyfriends rip it up outside.

For that one special "local" - I, too, have experienced that one dude with the messed up shoulder who paddles all retarded and drops in on everyone. I hear he lives in Los gatos or Scott's valley. Everyone was having a good time until he paddled out and started to "regulate." I stayed out of his way and he didn't really mess with me, but it still ruined my session because he was being such a dick to everyone else. My question to everyone else is: are you sick of him? Do you want him to stop? The mile is known for car break-ins, what if his car starts getting f*$ked up every time he's a dick? It might start to get pretty expensive for him to have to replace a broken window every time he surfs. Maybe someone should post what kind of car he drives. Think of it as karma. Just sayin.

4 mile - For a while 4 mile was my outlet, would head up there on small days, or a steeply angled northwest that didn't make the wrap into town. Was often populated with logs, slugs, beginners, and nice people on family days at the beach. And maybe a few local type guys warming themselves in the oven.

AFter 15 years of occasionally surfing there, last year was the first time I ever had anybody say anything to me. "Hey, get off the bowl, locals only here." I had to scratch my head, I kind of couldn't beleive what I was hearing. I was on a shortboard, didn't get in anybody's way, There were only like 3 other people out. My only crime was sitting at the bowl on an uncrowded day. All right man, you can have it, it takes too much time driving up there and hiking out the beach anyway. I hope you return the respect if you ever make it down to Sewers.

Karma has been served - WOW ... in the past 9 months as I drive up the coast several times a week from my "home owned" residence in SC ... I find 20 to 30 cars at 4 mile. Dwayne ... I am sorry braddah. Miss surfing the bowl buddy, but it is not worth it. Boycott the invasion of donkeys !!!
Move the oven to the tracks !! Check for badges like on the east coast.

Is it me ... but in every other sport you need to have an ability level before you move on (e.g. baseball, etc). Where's the beach marshall? Ohh that's right (our pecking order will handle it), we are in a recession ... California can't afford it. My bad ....
