About Oceano/Pismo

Miles of beachbreak, wide open to wind and swell. Breaks further out the bigger it gets; the inside reforms are surfed when the outer bars are closing out. Can be rather mushy due the gradually sloping bottom contours. Best during the summer or on small, clean winter swells. High tides work best. Lots of room; crowds are never a factor.

Wicked currents and undertow. Accessed through one of the several parking lots in Pismo State Beach.
