Beach-break in San diego...Mission is not known for it's great surf, as during nice weather its insanely crowded and annoying. If there are crossed up swells you can find some good peaks but usually it just walls up and closes out on you. (the beach faces due west) It can hold decent size and can surprise you once in awhile. Overall Mission should be just a "Plan B" if your choice break isn't firing. It's a fun break just to get in the water, but don't go there expecting too much.
In the winter, it can hold some decent swell and can be a good break. Most times, however its just an average beach break full of close-outs and mediocre waves. Sometimes its great, but those times are few and far between
Fun little beach break easy to access when you are just Jonesing to get in the water
