Moss Landing in Monterey is a reasonably exposed beach break that is often working. Winter is the best time of year for surfing here. Works best in offshore winds from the east southeast. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the northwest. The beach break provides left and right handers. Best around mid tide when the tide is rising. Sometimes crowded. Beware of rips, locals and sharks.
