13th Street Spot Guide

13th Street Guide

About 13th Street

A beefy, unpredictable sandbar left that breaks during the winter on big W and NW swells. Steep and hollow; epic rides are possible. Crowded when it’s on. Gnarly currents and shorepound. Not the most consistent spot in the county. Low tide preferred. Holds bigger than double-overhead.

Access is at the foot of 13th Street in Seal Beach.
