 Access

Lefts and Rights is one of many great surf spots in the Hollister Ranch. The ranch is only accessible by car if you know someone who lives there. The property is private and the locals do not appreciate outsiders. Locals park their 4WD on the beach in front of the break.

 Additional Information

This is the most consistant Ranch wave and also the most crowded. Do not attempt to park your boat near the reef or walk in- a five mile walk from Gaviota- and surf. Everyone knows everyone and you will not be able to hide in the lineup. It is one very compact peak that breaks on a track and peals off in perfection for fifty yards. This wave breaks year-round which is very unique at the Ranch.

Atmosphere

General

If you want to surf the Ranch, be really nice to as many Santa Barbara surfers as you can. Eventually, someone will invite you because the place is too special to keep to themselves.

Rights schmights - Man, I'm dislectic, Is it rights and lefts, or, lefts and rights? Anyway, I've surfed it before. Had to scold some guys for runnning me over and popping my donald duck inflatable surfriding mat. Ranch locals are scary. So are caterpillers (ick) and lady bugs. Welp, see ya' later.

Rights and Lefts?? - I think the spot described here is actually "Rights and Lefts", not "Left and Rights".

- me and four friends boated in last winter, anchored outside the break, and scored perfect head high glassy barrels by ourselves for 2 hours. where were the big, bad locals?
