About Campus Point

The surf usually isn't the best here, but it does have its epic days and is considerably more consistent than the county's more southerly or easterly beachbreaks. Campus Point requires a pretty big swell to reach its potential, and those kinds of swells usually coincide with foul S winds and overall crummy conditions. Nevertheless, Campus Point is a long wave with several sections, including a zippy inside wall during low tide.
