The Jetty can be fun when it's pumping. Line up about 5 feet from the jetty near the end. On very low tides or negative tides it will barrel a few yards pass the Jetty.
The wave here can wall up towards the beach and literally drop out from underneath you. But if it doesn't it's a fun ride all the way in.
This is a fun spot to surf when El Porto looks like a parking lot. Usually pretty soupy but alot more fun than having a weekend of party waves with every longboarder in LA. Wait.... maybe I should say this place sucks!!! Whatever you do DON'T surf here!!!

Correction - this person listed the wrong spot the El Segundo Beach Jetty is directly in front of the parking lot and rarely breaks
