San Clemente Pier Spot Guide

Stormrider Guide

Crowded, mediocre sandbars on the pier’s north side can sometimes get good. Typical beachbreak peaks, longer lefts, sectiony and often hollow. No wind protection, but any tide is fine.

Fun during the summertime.
High school scene keeps it crowded. Longboard legend Rich Chew was head guard here for decades.
