About Antonio's

Primarily a right wall with a shorter left, Antonio's generally has two main takeoff areas, which helps spread the crowd out a bit. When it's cooking, though, you're taking off directly in front of The Landing restaurant and racing along a series of carveable sections, whipping out your full repertoire of off-the-lips and aerials -- it's not really a death-defying wave. Antonio's only fatal flaw is that it's painfully onshore in the NE trades, which means you gotta either get up early or hope for glassy conditions or S winds. Its saving grace is that it's generally bigger than the Rincon side of the point 'cause it faces more north and it takes leftover swell and turns it into fun.
