Atmosphere

If you are a surfer on long island Lido west is the place to be during the summer , b/c of its considerable size and crowds. During the late fall and winter its parking lot is usually blocked off but access is still possible. During these cold months this beach looks desolate and not very appealing to paddle out into, especially when there is a good swell. But overall it is a good fun and at times challenging wave to ride.

I love this place... - Lido West makes you a better surfer/bodyboarder. Don't believe me? Paddle out during a decent swell (doesn't need to be huge). Lido West jacks up higher and is more powerful than a lot of other beaches I've been to. I love this spot, and have met a lot of great people there. I also like seeing kooks get their asses handed to them on the ocean floor - they're usually the ones paddling back and forth in the lineup and acting like idiots, and get jacked right under the lip. LOL. I can sit on the beach all day and just watch people rip during the rare times we get hurricane/Noreaster swell. I love it.
