 Additional Information

Seaman Spit In Birch Bay State Park breaks 15-20 times a year or more. While it's difficult to predict and requires good winds out of the NW, W or SW for swell it's a fun small wave with a nice shape that holds for 75-100 yards down the shoreline in the state park. Make sure you buy a parking pass when parking at the point in the State Park or you'll get a ticket.

Atmosphere

If you're lucky enough to see this breaking, grab your board and get in the water quick. Seaman Spit is best suited to SUP surfing on most days and can be prone surfed on larger days. Look for winds out of the NW on an incoming tide. There's a Birch Bay webcam pointed at the point in the State Park and this is the best way to see if there are any waves breaking. Usually only 1-2 people will be at this spot, but on good days there may be a mix of surfers, SUP surfers, kayaks, and surf skis but everyone gets along.

General

This break continues to remain ridden by only a few people in the know in NW Washington. Originally it was though to only break once to twice a year but over time we've found it breaks around 15-20 times a year or more.

2 days of strong winds and surf - May 23 and 24 a strong front moved through with 35-50 mph winds. Started out of the SW on Tuesday and then moved W and NW on Wednesday. Got a late 60 min session in on Tuesday night in 30-35mph winds, crazy hard to stay standing and in the takeoff

WINDY AS F***, BUT A COUPLE OF LONG RIDES MIXED IN - About 5pm I looked at the Cherry Point wind report and it showed 31 mph winds and 35 mph gusts. I checked the Birch Bay webcam and sure enough I could see white waves at the point. I grabbed the 10’6″ SUP and rushed down to

- Had missed a couple of days of waves in Jan and Feb but today in late February Seaman Spit started working. We had snow in the morning so it was cold but the tide and winds were just right to offer up some 2-3ft well formed walls that peeled all the

Small SUP waves - I knew the main storm swell was supposed to show up on Sunday but I saw some waves breaking on Saturday and figured I'd get in the water. When I got there saw a couple of 2ft waves but within minutes was down to 1 ft as the tide came in. Had so

Good winter and spring strong winds - Been enough high winds out of the NW this winter and spring that I surfed out here 4 times in the last couple of months. Not bad for inland surfing with no exposure to the open ocean.

Two sessions in one week at the spot - Ankle biters 9/26/09 - but surfable.

Another day of surfing in Bellingham - Had surfable 1-2 foot peelers today. Went out on my lunch break and got my longest ride yet at this spot, caught a wave off the point and surfed 200 feet down the north side. Small waves but the weather was great.
