Visitor Reviews of Corona Del Mar Jetty
“It's sort of a joke that this place is even mentioned. It is not a "Surf Spot" it is a novelty wave on the "very" rare occasion that it breaks which is 0-3 times per year. It only breaks when it is big enough to be a danger to 98% of beach going folks so it should not in anyway be considered a "Surf Spot", but everybody who would ever surf here knows that anyway. And the final kicker is that if this wave is actually breaking, everywhere, and I mean EVERYWHERE is having the best day of the year so again, complete novelty and throw away surf session for anyway who would even bother. Cheers Mates.”
