Finding some power

The surf at Blacks Beach is very unique to California because of it's power and ability to create such awesome barrels. The reason the waves have so much power is because of the extreme increase in the shelf under water just outside of standard inclination of the coastline. This extreme increase causes the waves to jack up and have more power and pitch then some other surf spots along the California coastline.

Blacks showing some size

Because of the power that Blacks Beach provides, this surf spot should not be attempted by beginners or even some intermediate surfers. Blacks Beach offers a wave that requires wave knowledge and years of surfing experience to surf correctly.
