Black stone is a fun wave that jacks up quicly out of deep water and mostly breaks left. The bounce from the rock forms a peaky wedge that can be tricky to take off on and offers a fast zippy ride that is more suitable for advanced surfers. There is also a shifty right hander that breaks into deep water which on the day can be good. A little bit further from the rock the wave is more mellow and suitable for intermediates and beginner surf lessons on smaller days. Black stone is adjacent to Mushroom rock and it usually depends on the wind direction to determine which wave is the better one to surf.
