Going North exit Olive Mill Road/Coast Village Road. Turn left and head over the rail road tracks (past the Montecito Inn) and down to the Coral casion Biltmore Resort. Directly in front of the Coral Casino, next to butterfly beach, is where it breaks best. Going South exit Olive Mill and hang a right to the beach (over the railroad tracks).

This is fast, and hollow wave. It is also Sectiony. Don't come here and expect to get a bunch of perfect little waves to yourself. But when it goes off it goes off good.
i love this spot, i surf it everytime it breaks, but new people shouldn't walk up and expect to get the sets or anything cause Big Local Vibe. Don't surf here if you want waves to yourself. Even the locals have to work for their waves. Surf there a lot and u'll get respect
great spot during the winter, same local crew on most days so newbs will stick out like a sore thumb

- Uh, this spot is NOT called Boneyards. I grew up in Cito and surfed this spot a thousand times - never ever ever heard anyone call it Boneyards. It's called either Biltmore or Coral Casino. Your choice.
Up the beach is a small reef called Graveyards (because it's directly in front of the Santa Barbara Cemetary). That spot breaks about once every six years. I'm guessing some Westmont kid got confused by this somehow, and so they renamed Biltmore to Boneyards. Lame name!
Also, it's not a beach break! It's a reef. Notice all the rocks?

WHo added this spot!?!? - What was the point of overcrowding a now overcrowded local spot....the wave is not even that good, its an overflow spot for Hammonds. Please think before you post local spots, leave some of the special spots a secret. This is not a special spot BTW but its a local spot non the less, and i would hate to see the secret loc spots getting exposed!!!!!!!!
