Go to Whidbey Island from hwy 20 turn west on libbey Rd follow the signs to the state park once past the gate(which foils the earliest dawn patrols)follow road to the right down the hill and park. follow the boardwalk to the break. If it's working and ther is already 3 or 4 guys on it, wait your turn it can't hold a crowd. bring a crappy board you are gonna drill it into the rocks if you try to milk all the wave.

Wait for the largest Swell of the season to catch it for sure. but worth a check even on a good west wind there maybe a little wave waiting. Real sloppy. Less reliable than Point Roberts but has enough potential to catch a small wave if you live in Northern Washington. Watch for a good wind (15Kt to 25+Kt) blowing in from the west before going out. Waves range from 1' to 4'.
Also check out Joseph Whidbey State Park near by. It has free parking (outside the gate) right next to the beach.
If you are an outsider, being timid is the best key. Islanders rule this spot (being on whidbey island) and generally have the right of way. Kooks are often chased from the water, though rare. A good crowd runs this place.
Cool laid back crowd, but can get pissed off with the presence of kooks. Waves are often shared generously between everyone. Many surfers know each other so outsiders stand out. This is a fickle spot and when it goes it goes. On a dry spell it is advised that you dont drop in on anybody, waveless locals get a bit upset when the big sessions come and they get snaked after waiting weeks for a good break.
This is the ultra mysto spot! if you can get this place wired you are either a weather guru or a kneeboarding local!

I wannasurf EBEY - I'll be paying Whidbey Island a visit the Second week of August for a wedding and would love to get some surfing in while there!!! I'll be honest, I'm not going to bring a board so I would need to barrow one. I am an experienced surfer currently working on snaps of the lip and cleaning up my floaters. Even a softop or NSP board would be awesome! Let's Surf!!!
