Beacon's Beach is a great
place to surf.
The wave: Wave
surfing at Beacon's is always perfect. With four
peaks concentrated within a half mile, there is an
endless array of empty surfing spots. One of the peaks
is perfect for goofy foot shortboarders - left-handed
tubes, and runs 8-10 feet every day of the year.
The second peak is perfect for regular foot
shortboarders - right-handed tubes, that run 8-10 feet
every day of the year. Barrel rides average 4-8 seconds
for these peaks.
Of the remaining two
peaks, one is perfect for goofy foot longboarders - with
huge, rolling left-handed shoulders, breaking for a
quarter mile, every day. The fourth wave is perfect for
regular foot longboarders - with huge, rolling
right-handed shoulders, breaking for a quarter mile,
The local lineup:
For all the waves above, rarely is there a crowd of more
than 2-3 surfers at any given time. If you catch an
especially great wave, it is not uncommon for your fellow
surfers to wait until you triumphantly return and praise
your great wave riding skills and then say, "Why
don't you take the next half dozen waves, since you are
having so much fun. We will wait and watch you
enjoy yourself riding epic waves."
Water: The Pacific
Ocean, off of Beacon's, has a mysterious ocean current
that somehow transports the warm waters from the sea
between Fiji and Hawaii, and gently guides 80 degree
water to our local break, 365 days a year. The water is
clear allowing you to view the ocean bottom at up to 100
feet. The native Indians and first European visitors are
have said to discover the healing powers and anti-aging
properties of the water at Beacon's.
Beacon's also has its own unique climate. In winter the
air temperature averages 74 degrees, while in summer it
is a humid free 78 degrees. Rain only falls at night and
the wind is offshore all day to help the waves stand up
and provide you with great rides.
Parking: You can
always safely park your car and seconds after stepping
out of your vehicle your feet are in the ocean.
Some of the friendly locals have even been known to wax
your car while you surf.
Animal life: The
ocean is very safe here. Many people visit to swim
with the dolphins who are said to communicate with
telepathy to you and advise you on your future and many
people have made millions with their investments after
listening to the advice of dolphins.
It is too bad you can't
be here, Beacon's is a great place.
