“Being a Seattle local and a surfer can be rough, as the closest surf breaks to ride a decent wave are roughly two hours away (or more) depending on which direction you're going. With that said, if you're up for an adventure and (if you're very lucky) a rippable left reef/mini-point, then Fort Ebey is worth the trip north. If you're looking for a consistent and reliable wave, this isn't it, but on the right day the wave can be pretty fun. I have been out to check it around about thirty times in the last two years and have only been lucky to catch it breaking a few times. It is very fickle. The water is usually pretty cold, colder than surfing the coast of Washington, probably due to the swell travelling so far down the straight, the wind and the upwelling of colder water to the surface, in any case, bring a 5/4 or thicker, booties, a hood, and gloves, (especially if you aren't from the northwest or somewhere cold), and maybe a beer or two for the locals. Stay loose haole.”
