A-Beach is a nickname to locals because of it being Atascadero Beach and it's amazing A-frames that break during the winter time.

Atmosphere

On just the right day during the fall at A-beach you can see some of the most beautiful sunsets during an evening session. Along with wave faces ranging anywhere from 5-10ft. with a 13-19 sec. period and also beautiful breaking A-frames. But this is if you catch the swell on just the right day...(It is not like this everyday!!!)

General

I ride both longboards and shortboards depending mostly on the type of day it is. At this particular spot I am a fan of the longboard. Both longboarders and shortboarders are found at this spot so you may feel different! But if you are going to catch this place during the summertime I highly recommend a longboard. During the fall and winter seasons either will work great! And during the Spring don't even waste your time comming out because it will be so blown out that you will think the ocean is white from all the white caps that you will be seeing.

experience at A-Beach - My friends and I loved this place. We camped up the highway at the state park and then surfed both days. Water at the time was not all that clean kind of bunched up, but the beaches were beautiful and very remote we were the only ones out there both days. I am dying to go back.
