Ruggles Spot Guide

Stormrider Guide

At the end of Ruggles Ave. a series of reefs line a point in the rocky coastline. Regular Ruggles is The Point, Bobbies and Stupid Spot in the middle, and Around the Corner at the end. All are rights except for a short left off The Point in a SW swell. A quality wave in large swells when it can link up long and strong without being really hollow. A SE swell hits dead on, but lower tides with NW winds are needed for Ruggles to live up to its reputation.

Parking in this historic, tourist-trampled neighborhood is the main hazard. There are a few side streets some distance from the break, which are plausible in winter. Average consistency along with above-average crowds and currents.
