The dredging that destroys the Harbor mouth in the winter ironically creates an amazing hollow beachbreak called the murph bar at twin Lakes Beach. There's allways some sort of waves at twin lakes, but it rarely gets good for surfing, but it's pretty good for boogie boarding if your into that.it is almost allways closed out, but with a enough sand build up,the right swell direction, and the right conditions This place can go off.At it's finest the murph bar can do a perfect small teahupoo impression. It's incredibly difficult to get it when it's good, but if you do you wont regret it
Most of the time the murph is good for tourists and beachgoers who want to boogie board or wade in the water, and the vibe is none. Allthough when it starts firing your going to want to know what you are doing out there. it can be a world class wave, but vary rarely. Look out for pros when it's on
One of the best rare beachbreaks in santa cruz, amazing wave
