San Luis Obispo Surf Breaks

San Luis Obispo has a mixture of sand and reef breaks. It might not be top of a California surfers 'to hit' list, but can offer some decent waves if the right conditions collide. The area has few sheltered spots and is usually blown out by mid day with NW prevailing winds. A few will have a sideshore/offshore condition from a NW but most breaks will need an SSE wind which usually comes with a storm. Morro Bay faces W giving it the best of most swells which on a good swell can light up the whole beach with A-frames and fast barrels, be prepared for crowds though. Hazard Canyon on it's day is epic although is unbelievably unforgiving, almost as much as the locals can be if you turn up in numbers. Pismo Beach is one of the more popular breaks which works best on a SE wind but with an array of shops and restaurants around the pier expect some big crowds when it's working.
