go for the left spot - While I was there, the left spot that anonymous mentions looked pretty decent. Sadly I didn't have a chance to surf it. There were only 2 body boarders (weekday) so plenty of room, but I can imagine that it gets crowded with locals in the weekends. I saw a lot of body boarders headed that way in Santa Cruz on Saturday.

crowded but decent - there are 2 (maybe even 3) surfable spots at this beach. the most obvious one is the sheltered bay on the left side. if the swell gets really big outside the stonewall and the tide comes in, you might catch some beautiful long waves starting at the rocks that seperate the sheltered from the semi-sheltered part, while watching the huge winter swell running in on the outside. the only problem is that the spot is incredibly crowded on weekends (tons of body- and longboarders), and that it only gets waves if the swell is really big. it doesn't work very good on low tide because the artificial reef outside blocks all waves. the second spot is on the right side of the bay and while not directly facing the swell is still not as sheltered as the first spot. when i was there, it had decent but short waves. i would only recommand it to experienced surfers, because you have to get out of the wave very quick, otherwise you hit the stoney beach. the last spot is right at the corner of the stone wall, right before the artificial stone reef. its a short and usually huge ride. i didn't try it coz i was scared of the stones, but i saw some bodyboarders riding some short ~9ft waves there.

martianez beach - This beach is perfec to the surfer inexperien or not.In martianez have two beach "la derecha" and "la baja ".The beach are of sand ,but is very dificulto get into the wather because it have rocks.
La derecha it is a righ wave, it have wave of 1 to 3 metres,it don^t have pipe ,it is very long and is very cool to long board.
La baja is for surfer more expert because it is more agresive y have pipe some times and y more short, it have waves of more than 3 but is very irregular.

La baja it is more agresive it have wave of 4
