About A St.

Moving south of FA and the Saint Augustine pier, you'll pass 16th Street. Keep going 16 blocks to A Street. Consistently crowded, A Street breaks on even the smallest days.

Park at the entrance to the street and don't worry about the crowds here. It's usually mellow in the lineup, and the wave is a fun, long ride. It's a rolling wave that's good on all tides, but higher tides may be better.
