Blackies Spot Guide

Stormrider Guide

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.
