Beacon's Reef and Surf



The Reef:

The reef and beach at beacon's is fairly subtle with a few larger rocks here and there. most of the rocks are in the lineup and pose no serious danger. On an extremely low tide, these rocks can get pretty close to the surface so be careful not to bounce off of them or lose a fin from your board on them.

The beach is mostly sand with some rocks scattered up and down the beach so it's also a great beach to just hang out for the day and chill.

The Surf:

Best Tide: Low to Medium.

Best Swell Directing: West and Northwest swells but South swells can also be very fun.

Best Winds: No wind is best but if any, a East wind will do wonders.

Best Size: Anywhere from 2 - 8 feet.

Best Months to Catch it Going Off: Beacon's can be surfed year around but the Winter months are best for shape an size.


There are several peaks that move around the Beacon's beach and I recommend watching the surf for a while before paddling out to find the wave that looks best. I usually notice that to the left of beach there are some really good waves that go almost un surfed. The Beacon's waves tend to be mushy and slightly slower on drop in but speed up very nicely once they hit the inside sections. The inside sections tend to wall up and become very fast so prepare for a ride!

Setting up for an awesome left

Beacon's is setup somewhat similar to a beach break in the ways that some of the waves can cross up and make for unmake able sections. I recommend taking your time and choosing your waves carefully to ensure a good day of surfing.
