Mendocino County Surf Forecast map for predicting the best wave and wind conditions across the region. For surfers, the map shows the most powerful swell tracking across near-shore open water and not the peak waves experienced by boats out at sea.

The forecast updates every 6 hours and most live weather reports update every hour.

Mendocino County Surf Breaks

Mendocino County has a mixture of sandy and rocky breaks, with a lot of breaks being inaccessible, Highway 1 runs most of this stretch of coast. The water tends to stay quite chilly so a 4/3 plus wetsuit will be needed year round. There are facilities all up and down the coast line, but don't be fooled into thinking this area holds a California paradise of surf, as most places are rocky and unrideable. Crowds are quite common and so are Sharks so beware.
