Southbay Beaches Manhattan Beach MB Pier is a popular spot in the South Bay of Los Angeles for surfers of all levels. With its exposed beach break with consistent surf and more than 300 days of sun per year, you can pretty much always count on good weather in Manhattan Beach so you can surf no matter the season. Ideal swells come in from the southwest, which creates mellow waves during sunset that are perfect for chill riding. It’s never too crowded, but you’ll always see at least a handful of surfers catching waves by the pier —it’s not uncommon to find surfers weaving through the mussel covered pillars below. Lets not forget the North End of MB... known as El Porto to most! One of the best times to surf out here is during sunset—you’ll have a front row seat for some of the best sunsets that Southern California has to offer. Consistent surf conditions year round for all levels. Hermosa Beach Mundane beachbreak peaks handling up to about head high. Best with early morning offshores and small, peaky swells combined with medium tides. Close-outs are common during large swells, although they can make for some spectacular barrels. The waves may be mundane, but they often get crowded. Redondo Beach Breakwater; A fast, walled left that breaks across the front of the King Harbor breakwall on north and west swells bigger than 6 feet. It’s said to hold up to 20 feet, long after the crowd has thinned. The wave refracts and is amplified off of the jetty, spinning out long, fast lefts that end in a sucker-punch shorebreak. Perched on top of the breakwall are a parking lot and several restaurants where you can take in the action over lobster bisque. But beware: on more than one occasion, huge swells have pushed whitewater right through the windows of the eateries — talk about fresh seafood. To that end, an Army Corps of Engineers project in 1997 moved some new rocks out onto the bend in the wall, and that, combined with the ongoing loss of sand, is costing the spot some of its former glory. According to regulars, the peak has moved closer to the beach, and the wave doesn’t wedge off the jetty as well. It very well could be the slow demise of one of L.A.’s few big-wave spots.
