About Venice Beach

Hollow, somewhat fickle wintertime sandbars, good up to a foot or two overhead. Needs outgoing tides and larger W swells. Plenty of board-snapping potential. Definitely not for beginners.

Unfriendly local crew. Strong rip currents when a good swell is running. Access through downtown Venice.
