Long beautiful stretch of beach break. Best on summer S and SW swells, winter swells tend to be too big for the beachbreak. Can be excellent when on and when winds cooperate. Fall is cleanest and best. Spring is usually blown out and the water is very cold. Open to all kinds of swell but to wind as well. Best early in the morning. Can be blown out for days on end.
Gorgeous area, great camping in the park and far from any towns. Rolling hills and oak forests. Lots of deer, tarantulas and sea life. Plus great burgers at the Park store.
Wouldn't suggest parking on side of road and walking down path. State constabulary give expensive tickets. Instead, just pay the $8.00 and park in the state park. You can shower off after surf and use restroom instead of bush...

Jalama shalama - My favortie day at J-lambs was three to five... guys rubbing sunscreen on my back just waiting for the wind to ease up so we can play twister on the beach and sip wine spritzers. Seriously, how fun can surfing be? All dressed up in a rubbersuit, urinating in it ,(gross) and getting all macho. Lighten up fellas, WAM reunion tour in 09'!!!. p.s. Speedos for bros.
