For most of the year you can go to the south of the south tower without a problem. I've been tempted a few times but haven't done it. These pictures show why. The conditions actually look fairly benign and the swell not all that large. That is until it began to break. Then it became real nasty, real quick. Guess the moral is, never sail amongst surfers. There is a reason surfers hang out where they do.
