Pay and park at the RV camp ground (5$), its right across from the surf and they have warm showers. this break does not always work so call the RV park before you go, they dont mind 1(360)928-3344. they have a clear view and can tell you if your wasting your time. when it does work it can be a fun break, good for beginners or just messing around. knee to shoulder high on an average day. best at the river mouth. The wave can be really fun but there are too many kayakers in the line up to feel comfortable the kayakers don't understand the rules of wave trading tending to drop in alot!
Crescent is like the catchers mitt of the Strait scooping up any available swell for some short close out rides.
Probably the best spot to learn on the Strait just learn how to avoid the kayakers

ANGRY LITTLE BALD GUY - look out for him, he is the owner of the RV park and will try to get money from you to surf the spot. he may tell you that he is going to call the police for being on private property but take it from someone who knows the laws, he may own the tide land but if you are standing in water he cant do anything about it. happy surfing and look out for him!!!

Crazy Lady Briefing - The crazy woman who has deeded ownership of the tidelands (meaning the ocean floor out to the extreme low tide line) will indeed call police and urge the county prosecutor to charge you with criminal trespass 2 for even standing in shallow water.
As weird and crazy as it sounds this is the case. If you surf here avoid contact with anyone walking on the beach, as they are weird owners looking to hassle you for money. If you don't pay them they may call sheriffs. Sheriffs side with owners to a degree, although the washington state application of the public trust doctrine may cover tideland passage for recreationalists and has not been adequately settled in court.
Just a heads up. When the crazy lady is screaming that she will call the police she means it, and they actually will drive out there and give you a considerable hassle...then charge you with a misdemeanor. It's a giant pain in the ass. Please still surf there and please do not encourage this crazy bitch by giving her any business.

kanuman - I've surfed the wave at Crescent Rock in a kayak a few times. Someone told me some locals call it the "Beast". It's about a mile offshore and it gets huge. I surf here a few days a week and do my best to be friendly and share, I try to give board surfers priority on waves since they are not as mobile. Peace
