Santa Maria Rivermouth/Guadalupe Beach in Santa Barbara is an exposed beach break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds from the east. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the southwest. The beach break provides left and right handers. Best around mid tide when the tide is rising. Rarely crowded here. Dangerous rips are a hazard of surfing here.
