This put-in requires a "I really want to do it" attitude.
It's about one half mile cart or carry to a little lagoon which can be
used to paddle out to a surf launch. At higher tides waves reform and break
in the deeper near shore water. Ideal at lower tides you can paddle out
into the soup zone, where you can time your way past the break zone which
is only 20 feet or less wide. Hopefully you are in the loop for surf conditions
and forecasts as this is not the place to be uninformed.
We launched into 2-3 foot surf with occasional sets to 4 feet. Local and offshore Buoys and all surf forecasts were under 4 feet.
If you're trying to avoid the surf entirely look to the South of where the lagoon enters the ocean. Sometimes but not always there is a flat spot in the surf break zone.

These are put-ins that I have used, and maybe totally different when you are there, in other words, paddle at your own risk.
If you want to check weather and ocean conditions before you paddle!
