The Dump

Edit Spot

Besides all the other distractions from surfing this spot let me add one more.. in my all my years surfing the Washington coast west and north this is the only place I ever saw a shark not too big probably 6 to 8 feet long but it spooked the hell out of me!My only explaination for this was that is was an El Nino year so the warmer(68 degrees!) water must of brought some vistors.

Such an ugly start to such a verdant beauty of a wave the water is so clear you'd think it was stained glass. The wave is a Washington wonder in the top 3 best on the coast. Powerful left that allows for numerous airs and other progressive moves. But, really don't bother trying to find it alone, it can be dangerous. Remember the airlift to PA costs $1500.00.

Additional Info:
Look out for bears in the actual dump. Careful to park your car where it won't get shot! Try to get there when it has been dry for awhile or the hike is insane!


this is a tricky spot to access..Follow hwy 112 to Neah Bay go through the village at the fork on the westside of town turn right then left up the hill take the 3rd right after the pavement turns to gravel find a safe solid place to park the ground is soft here causing many sad dig outs in the rain. If you look around and see majestic grand forest you're in the wrong place! You want nasty garbage all over, shot up cars and bears hiding in the bushes then you are in the right spot. On the northwest side of the gabage area there is a trail that leads down to the break. It's best if you pack your stuff down and change into your wetsuit on the beach or you'll be sportin' a new hole in your 5/4. with the nearest surf shop 2+ hrs away
