a lot of amazing surfers grew up around this spot....the south bay has a lot of surfing history...not much here in the summer....but a big winter swell with the right conditions....
you might get lucky!
Surf City....fun town to be in....ultra crowded in the summer and surf is rare....but it can still get those special fall and winter mornings when the waves are pumping!

Best in Years - This last weeks combo storm SW windswell and wnw ground swell gave perfect waves on the southside of Hb pier. The best and biggest/cleanest waves.
A small pack was out only, Slo Dog, Murf, Mikey, Tree and a few dorks who couldn't handle the size. Solid overhead and thick perfect shacks from 10th street all the way to the pier. Unforgetable.

Surf surf, I want surf - Alright already, its September. Where are my September swells? Bring on Autumn.

Not too shabby - Saturday was a mellow 1-3 faces with solid offshores. Sort of resembling mini wikiki. Stayed offshore until 1:00 pm, then the winds finally switched. Fun until then though. Small waves and warm water brought all the barnies out.
