“Jalama Beach County Park” CA.- Surfing

Welcome to Jalama Beach County Park Here on a mid Sept morning about 8:15 a.m we arrive with ENE offshore winds Air temperatures this day at sunrise had low 50’s with an afternoon high briefly hitting 70 degrees as the wind turned back onshore cooling the beach quickly! The water temperature was on the cool side about 56 degrees This is the north peak of the campground, it can get very good although it backs off a lot, the waves here get much punchier straight out or even a bit to the south end There really was not much swell this day, all areas south of here almost 300 miles to San Diego were only about 1-2 max 3 foot faces best areas.. Most times in this area during good size swells it gets too big for most surfing abilities, and paddle outs can be on the very difficult side- Spring and especially Fall seem to be the best time of year to surf Jalama with fair weather conditions Normally offshore winds are common at sunrise, but then can turn quickly onshore after about 10 a.m Summer time can be foggy a lot early morning with a calm to slightly onshore flow, turning hard onshore clearing skies afternoon- great for windsurfing! Winter time the best shaped waves are at the next break about 1/2 mile to the south “Tarantula’s” The bottom is mostly sand, there maybe a few large rocks mostly covered underneath some times exposed a little.. Some kelp will break off mainly from offshore and areas south where there is more of a rock bottom and float around here in the water… SSW SW swells 195-240 degree angles are best with a little W 270 to WNW combos to help peak up the lines a little and give this beach break some shape! Medium to high tides are good and bring more of the juice closer to shore, also helps break up the walls Lower tides the waves can break pretty far outside making it seem a little more sketchy out there, as with open waters Great Whites and other large fish will be cruising!! This wave here has some WNW swell to it producing a semi long tapered right line, also slightly breaking on the next sandbar outside- Day parking and overnight camping available year round with a fee. Also cabins with heating along with amenities can make for a very comfortable stay! Other popular activities include Windsurfing, Kite flying, Shoreline fishing, Relaxing in the sun, Picnics, and Rockhounding

  8. Another WorldView Is Possible says:

    Why surf the creek mouth in front of the camp?

    Itz usually bigger and better at the nearby reef breaks – just a short walk down the beach.

    On a real swell… those spots get big and hairy… like a certain type of spider.

    HENRY!!!! How are you!? I just found a message from you in the old messaging system and wrote you back! I am SO excited to see this video! I am originally from Santa Barbara, CA and with my Grandparents living in Lompoc I swam at Jalama Beach all the time!!!! There are SO many WONDERFUL memories here!!!!! I am saving this in a special playlist to go back and watch again of special places I love that I find videos about! I live near NYC, though still near the beach lol, and don't get back very often so these are a wonderful treat to get to see home and places I know so well and have such happy memories there with family! THANK YOU!!!
