Surfers Guide To Beacons Beach
Beacon's Beach is a great place to surf.
The local lineup
The Pacific Ocean, off of Beacon’s, has a mysterious ocean current that somehow transports the refreshingly cold waters from the Aleutian Islands, and gently guides 40 degree water to our local break, 365 days a year. The water is clear allowing you to view the ocean bottom at up 2-3 feet. The native Indians are have said to caustic properties of the water at Beacon’s which has lead to a thriving metal stripping business.
Beacon’s also has its own unique climate. In winter the air temperature averages 44 degrees, while in summer it is surprisingly humid and 48 degrees. Another bonus is that rain only falls during the day so your surfboard can get washed while you are in the line-up. The heavy onshore wind only blows hard from one hour before sunrise to one hour after sunset. The advantage of this wind, gusting 25-35 knots everyday, is that your hair will dry very quickly.
