Morro Rock in San Luis Obispo is a fairly exposed beach break that has dependable surf. Autumn and winter are the optimum times of year for waves. Works best in offshore winds from the east. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the northwest. The beach break provides left and right handers. Good surf at all stages of the tide. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Take care of rips and sharks.
