Bean Hollow State Beach in San Mateo is a fairly exposed beach and reef break that only works when conditions are just right. Summer offers the favoured conditions for surfing. Works best in offshore winds from the east. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southwest. The left hand reef break is better than the right.. Best around mid tide. It very rarely gets crowded here. Hazards include rips and sharks.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
