I have visited this spot probably half a dozen times over the last few years, this particular shelf is really only accessible and covered in cool green stuff and timed with sunrise a several times a year, multiple this by the availability factor ( :) ) and it becomes pretty hard to be there at the right time :). It really has to be lowish tide and low swell, pretty well anything else there and is a good chance you will change the local sign with the body count from 4 to 5.
Now if you thinking, I would have to be pretty keen to be standing here as the wave washed over, bear in mind, that off frame, just to the left there were a bunch of seagulls, they did not even bother to move as the water washed over the shelf and tickled their little toes :) couple this with the fact that the waves which did wash over are only the large set which happens roughly every 7 minutes or so.
