Changing tidal surges can create some very dramatic waves at this amazing beach. This beach has a jetty on the south end. The waves bounce off the jetty creating a secondary wave. This secondary wave combines with the next wave and multiplies its power and intensity. With the up coming tide, the waves change in a big way. The rising tide creates a third wave as the water rushes down off the beach. This is called backwash. This backwash slams into the on coming waves. Complete Chaos!
