About Hammonds Reef

Classic righthand cobblestone reefbreak in the wealthy town of Montecito. Occasional lefts. Well-shaped, lined-up wave with a few punchy sections. Holds considerable size and always offers classic rides on a good day. Medium tides with clean W swells work best here. Big S swells also get in, creating a welcome respite to long, flat Santa Barbara summers.

Almost always crowded, reflecting its high consistency. Accessible by walking up from the small Miramar Beach/Eucalyptus Lane parking area.
