“El Capitan” CA. surfing 3-7 foot wave faces

16 Views



This is El Capitan State Beach Park located north Santa Barbara County in Southern California U.S.A El Capitan needs a good size west swell or even better a WSW coming in from a 265-270.degree direction. As the angle steepens WNW and primary NW it needs a very big swell to make the wrap in to this hard to hit primo point break. The Channel Islands south offshore as seen in this video almost always ensure a complete wave block during summer! That’s San Miguel Island top right center screen And that is Santa Rosa Island left center screen The weather is generally awesome in this part of the state! Miles west of the big cities give this place clean air and most times clean water and beaches ( occasional tar or oil spills have occurred in this region).That’s Naples closest 1st. point left screen next break south and east. A few storms roll through here in the winter but this part of the coastline has more of a protected side offshore flow dominate from the NW. Air temperature highs during January can be anywhere from mostly low 60’s- some upper 60’s on a good day, no less than low-mid 50’s during brief cool rainy days for highs. Morning low air temperatures low 40’s, but also can get into the low 30’s sometimes in winter. Summer time has great weather mostly upper 60’s and into the 70’s, some low 80’s possible, Fog can roll in unexpectedly cooling things down fast, and reducing visibility to almost zero! Water temperature stay cool all year not much less than mid 50’s January- upper 60’s a few 70 degree marks possible around August.Overnight camping is allowed here in a woodsy green grassy on the beach atmosphere. The wave itself can get primo hollow coming off 2nd point into 1st then a long zipping wrap to the inside. If you like Rincon you will really like El Cap! Problem is on most days Rincon will be twice the size, unless you can catch that rare WSW swell direction. The far outside 3rd point or Indicator has a few large boulder rocks exposing making a tough connection only on the biggest of days when not a problem then, also a board dinging paddle out if not careful! Shoreline is large cobblestone, with the beach having little sand and mostly green grass with bushes and some trees.Parking along side Pacific Coast Hwy with a great view of the break keeps the crowd thick in the line -up! Truly a score if you can catch this place, intermediate safe surfing inside, experienced to pro on the far outside will satisfy the best of them also!
