About Leo Carrillo

A consistent fun righthand cobblestone point/reef wave. Likes a mid to low tide and works best with S swells. Kelp forest is too thick to ride comfortably at low tide; sometimes high tide shorebreak can be fun. The take-off zone is just outside of (or next to) the large rock. Prevailing NW wind blows offshore.

State beach campground. Gets extremely crowded with surfers of all ability. Popular with windsurfers too. Lots of movie beach scenes shot just around the point to the north.
