Cojo in Santa Barbara is a fairly exposed beach and reef break that has quite reliable surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds blow from the north. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southwest. It very rarely gets crowded here. Take care of rips and rocks.
