Arroyo Laguna in San Luis Obispo is an exposed beach and reef break that only works once in a while with no particular seasonal pattern. The best wind direction is from the northeast. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southwest. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves as well as a right hand reef break.. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Rarely crowded here. Beware of rips, rocks and sharks.
