Walk up at lower tide from Shoreline Park. Used to be that you could climb down from the lighthouse opposite the elementary school, but it's fenced off now.

Will always be uncrowded because it requires effort to reach, even though it's in the middle of town almost. Better wave than the misc. reefs at Shoreline Park, and I like it better than Mesa Lane or the Pit (by far!) You can have it to yourself midweek. Fun and forgiving.
Not world class and there are better spots in SB county by far, but between Campus and Sandspit, it's definitely one of the best spots.

don't surf here - if you surf here..1. respect proper surf protocol, meaning "wait your turn".2. YOU WILL anger those who have surfed such a fickle spot their entire lives.3. do not drop in on my wife.4. be friendly, courteous, and safe.This is not really a surf spot. It's loaded with rocks and not readily accessible.
