Visitor Reviews of Pacific City/Cape Kiwanda
“It's similar to any break on the oregon coast, its subject to a lot of wind, big tide changes, and crossing swell. When it is surf able, the surf is frequently junky. Most surfers have low wave counts during their sessions. The water tends to be cold due to upwelling. Also, its the most crowded surf spot on the oregon coast, because its more consistent. And, it does get good.”
