About Hermosa Beach

Mundane beachbreak peaks handling up to about head high. Best with early morning offshores and small, peaky swells combined with medium tides. Close-outs are common during large swells, although they can make for some spectacular barrels.
The waves may be mundane, but they often get crowded.

The first Velzy-Jacobs shop was located nearby, and there are numerous surf shops in the vicinity. This is the heart of the South Bay. Access is west of The Strand, a pedestrian walkway, all the way down to Pier Avenue.
