Pedro Point

Edit Spot

I don't see it breaking very often and when it does, there are usually better places to surf.

Place is spooky for a few reasons... Tends to be a bit lonely. If you surf the outside, you will be way out in the open ocean (at least that's how it feels). Also, this is the heart of the red triangle, and you will be sitting at its tip like a tender morsel on the edge of a stick. But, no shark attacks on surfers yet. Spot can get very heavy Hawaiian-style, and giant boulders towards the inside make it an experts-only wave on most days. But can be a score. Better to paddle out with a buddy.

Additional Info:
Don't park or conspicuosly tresspass out on the point beyond the 'Private Property' fence. Some of the locals who live there are friendly, but many are like fascists when it comes to protecting their turf. Pedro Point is good on a south wind and big swell, and can hold lots of size. It's essentially a big wave spot and doesn't even break when it is under about eight foot faces. Never really closes out, although not always that good on huge swells. A few different sections, all of which connect together maybe once or twice a year. The outside is big and powerful, and a good left bowl if you can get into it. I've seen guys get out of the water just to grab a gun and give it another go. These waves are tricky to get into, but can be big, fun, and uncrowded. There's another section towards the inside which can get good at higher tides and a big swell. It's a smaller wave and the take off is over some shallow boulders, then the wave backs off a bit for a fun, albiet short, workable section. Then ya gatto kick out again before the big rocks...


Either park near the point (but not in the Private Property area) or paddle from the Boat House.
