There are really two separate points here, one in front of the bathrooms--easy, slower right and shorter left, and Pipes, at the top, where you can usually spot a few pros
The surf is best before 11 AM and after 5PM when the wind is offshore. Outside these time the wind can be strong onshore and really makes the paddle out an effort. Paddle out from the north and you miss most of the big breaks coming out and within 5 mins the current will put you on top of the action.
Pipes is a powerful, fast barrelling wave--move down the point for more gentle rollers.
Great spot, great surfers of all abilities, but packed in summer. Waves average around 4-6 ft. Not a summer wave, best in winter.
This place picks up almost everything, but can get windy.
Nice but cold!! (I'm not native to Californian sea temp!)Watch the high tides when you surf here. When it gets above 4 feet the entry or exit can be very rocky and difficult to manage.

- If you have a problem with me, why don't you talk to me face to face instead of hiding behind your key pad. I've only sounded people who had it coming. Did you? Thanks, Davey Miller.

just surf. - Ventura point is a great place to learn to surf. But the top point by the river is not. I'm sure thing's would run smoother and safe. If traveling folks knew this. Everyone is welcome at vtpoint. Just use your head.
