 Additional Information

Bounded to the south by a rock pile and to the north by scattered tide pools and a reef, Santa Rosa breaks best during from late summer through the winter months.

The spot can handle a number of fun waves, including super clean wedge that wraps around the southern rock pile at high tide during a consistent south swell. At low tide during a south, you should be able to catch some amazing lefts breaking off of the north side of the rock pile.

The beach break in the center best handles west and north swells, and you might find a fun right over the northern reef.

- Uh...when locals write that it sucks...you gotta to know it gets good...really good. That's all I got to say. But bring your 4/3...even in summer. I was there in August 2010 and it was 53 degrees in the water!!! Damn that's cold...especially when you could be in the tropics instead!

beginners??? - Make sure your life insurance is paid up. Can sneak up on you. Not for the weak
