Go to Montana De Oro state park past Los Osos. Keep going until you see a gate and a sign that says "Sand Spit" and "Day use only." Go down that road and it will dead end in a parking lot. Then get out and walk down the path that goes towards the ocean.

On a big day it is impossible to paddle out. On a good ground swell in October this place has lots of hollow and consistent fun waves. If one peak is to crowded it is easy to walk a little bit down the beach and find another peak all to yourself. Unfortunately this exposed beach gets blown out quite often. This place sucks for wind swells.

Board Snapping or Crappy - this place can get good, not as often as you would think though, it picks up tons of swell, best waves I ever surfed here were in summer and fall, otherwise it just gets massive in the winter and really nobody surfs the place when it is huge cuase there are like 5 sandbars to paddle through so it is impossible to get out. I would recommend going to this spot when the waves are small and you need to get in the water cuase there is ususally something to ride here

- sand spit is pretty freaking heavy. i know i guy who broke 3 boards in a week there this winter. its really a rock reef that is covered with sand i think though, so its not a true beach break
