Go into CANNON BEACH from the north or the south on 101. (this is a no brainer) head right down to the main beach access and you'll look down the beach and see a huge rock out in the water. (GO TOWARDS IT) when you get to it, surf on the left of it (when looking out in to the water). If confused about the mushy surf ask the local ranger that patrols the beach, or the infrequent surfer that you might see, and they are more than likely willing to give you the info you need to surf this spot.

This is totally a place to take the family because when the tide goes out it is has killer tide pols for the kids. GREAT STUFF! And the surf usually sucks but if you get out there early enough it should be decent. remember HAVE FUN!
its ok I dont frequent it too much...
SHORTIES or SEASIDE POINT are much better
(if the wind is right).

Body Boarding - We went last Summer and did some bodyboarding at Cannon Beach. It was great fun and we didn't see any sharks, although we don't go out to deep water. The Lifeguards were really helpful and pointed out the best places to try each day. Indian Beach at Ecola State Park is also really good and pretty sheltered. I managed a couple of hours at a time in a "shortie" wetsuit and I'm no spring chicken!

Don't waste your time here - This place is REALLY SHARKY and a shitty wave to boot. Yep, all the shark stories here are true...they seem to hang out around Haystack Rock for some reason. Just do yourself a favor and head up to Seaside and surf the point there or, for beginners, the cove. Anyone who knows anything about surfing in the Northwest will tell you that Seaside has BY FAR the best waves in the region....see you in the water.
