This is a well fast wave which is wicked fun.
Too many people and popular with the locals. get up early bro.
If you got this wave to yourself and a couple of mates on a good day youd leave the water with the feeling set up for a good few cervezas!

Very long wave - I got one of the longest waves of my life at san miguel. Caught the right at the rivermouth and rode it to about that first house - then had to work the tail to keep it going around that corner, but then it jacked up again and just kept going and going, deep into the bay until the outcropping of rocks just before the freeway. According to google maps, that's about 2000 feet or 600+ yards (6+ football fields).

Day after thanksgiving surfed it firing - surfed San Miguel the day after thanksgiving 2009. the waves were really fun. it was about 4 to 6 feet or so on the faces. there where probably about 20 guys out in the morning surf. we paddled out and some clown local immediatly started talking shit to us, he goes "you gringos want some coffee and donuts out here" what the fuck does that even mean? typical san miguel local kook that can barely surf but thinks he should immediatly talk shit and judge people. Turns out I got tons of set waves and all kinds of inside waves and had a great session, thanks for talking shit dude and getting me fired up to paddle all over you dumb local ass, made my day. Anyway its still business as usuall at San Miguel. 5 or 6 local guys in the water and a few local girls still. One of the funny things is that the chicks almost surf as good as the guys now, both of whom suck. There was some local long boarder on a red white and blue longboard that ditched his board on a big set and snapped his leash, board into rocks and he was left swimming for a while, we laughed. Nobody wanted to help him get his board of the rocks because he was being such a dick, would you have been a cool person we would have saved your board for you dude, too bad you are a dick and you cant surf either,stink bug!!!! Keep it real at this place and dont let the locals intimdate you, I have been surfing this spot for 15 or so years, I have seen so called "locals" come and go. If you can surf and are a strong paddler you can take waves from these dicks. enjoy.

No come around gringo! - I am surfer of San Miguel and I have say for you now that when you come to here many people will become mads at you because this is lokal place! But American girls is the best because of blonde hair and also big chichis has pamela ANderson! Pearl Jam is number one Kelly Slater is best!
