Fort Point in SF Marin is a sheltered beach and reef break that only works once in a while. Winter is the best time of year for surfing here. Works best in offshore winds from the south. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the northwest. A left hand reef. Best around low tide when the tide is rising. Often Crowded. Beware of rips, rocks, locals and sharks.
