About South Beach

The main break of Del Norte County. A wide, flat, expansive beachbreak near the Crescent City Harbor right alongside Hwy 101. The north end of the beach is the most sheltered and blows offshore during north winds, so it’s a good place to go during springtime and between winter storm fronts. Getting out can be a problem. Best during high tide on SW swells.
Rhyn Noll (Greg’s son) hosts an annual October longboarding contest here.
