About Blackies

Occasionally epic, long wintertime sandbar lefts north of Newport Pier, in front of Blackie’s Bar. The rights do exist but pale in comparison. Better with lower tides, a due W swell and a Santa Ana wind blowing.

Definitely always crowded when it’s on, since it is a rare and attractive occurrence.
