 Additional Information

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!

Atmosphere

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.

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.
