Plenty of beach parking in the lot, or one hour on the street, starts at 9AM when most surfers are long gone. Watch out for local highschool surf teams during the week up till 8AM and surfschools after 9AM. Don't paddle out to the
break and just start grabbing waves, there is a heavy local vibe, take your turn.
Northside is for longboarders, southside for shortboarders and lids. When Huntington gets too big Seal is invaded by the southcounty locals who normally poo poo the break.
Works best in the morning when conditions are usually glassy or very light offshore. Best tide is low or incoming. There are two main peaks. First a pier bowl (Harvey Wallbanger) refracting off the sea wall into a fast hollow lefthander across the inside sandbar. Second a middle peak breaking into the sea wall, a short hot suicide right. At times there is a very strong current and watch out for Stingrays on the bottom.
