Dangers

 Additional Information

Easy to surf, popular beach, mix of all types of people. No localism or heavy vibe. No real hazards except for the occasional collision from overcrowding. Breaks all down the beach from about 4th Street in the south to 25th street in the north - if one area is too crowded, move to the next peak. Usually fairly flat-faced, however, on good days it gets hollow, and on near perfect days I've surfed the Endless Lefthander, a hollow wave that peaks around 11th Street and carries all the way to 15th. This rarely occurs, unfortunately.

Bad Wave, Lefts are better than rights. Breaks fast and is walled most of the time.

11th Street awesome! - Jeez the best time i've had surfing occurred this morning. No wind, not choppy, sets come in every 5-10 min. Spectacular lefts. Hey leave it at one star, leave this place for me. Only three guys out this morning during the prime time. Been surfing for about a year now, and this became my new favorite place.

Bad wave? - I wouldn't rate 15th St. as one star for wave quality, it can hold bigger swells unlike Scripps or O.B. (or really any south beach break). Does wall up, but not as bad as Scripps. Prime cougar territory

Old men on logs - What would be a fun wave is ruined by old men on logs. However, the one saving grace is these turds go away once the place gets overhead, but by then somewhere else nearby is probably better...
