Breaks just south of the Jalama Beach Park. You can park on the cliff and pay the ticket you are likely to get, or pay to park at the park and hike the mile down to the reef.

A powerful reef peak with lefts and rights. Lefts are preferred for their shape and occasionaly flawless spitting tubes. The rights are slabby and unpredictable beasts. A pain in the ass. Both hold good size and dish out slaps when underestimated. The bottom is a rocky reef, high tide = no worries, low tide = sketchy! T's breaks fairly consistently but needs a 6ft+ swell to work well. North swells provides shorter rides with sections at the end, South swell is best with way longer rights/lefts. Fun on small 6 ft days. I've surfed it over 13 ft and it gets extremely intense! Sometimes mushy but with a good sized swell, gets very hollow and powerful. Ideal Conditions: early morning, mid tide, big south, offshore winds. If you want mushy and unpowerful, go to Pismo Beach. If you want big left/right hollow reef breaks, go to T's in Jalama!
A beautiful stretch of coast but winds can be a problem. Plus if it is blown out you are screwed. No other spot to go to for at least an hour+. Usually twice the size of the Santa Barbara breaks. If you have a boat you are better off at the Ranch.
Fun place for a sesh when SB is too small.

surfer - T's is a great spot with hollow point breaks that have barrel petential. t'S IS VERY CONSISTENT, usually more consistent then jalama. T's can get swells up to 13-16 ft. If you want the best wave of your it will probaly be here.

Yeah dudes - this place is fun if you can stay out long enough and get a wave before a wave gets you if you know what I mean, this place is a pain in the ass and will make you work.
