Review & Photos by Bill Polick
Anacapa Island hovers on the horizon as Jon Harms paddles
for the small right. Maurice Luque waits his turn, with a small
group of locals around. It's not crowded, but then there's not much
surf this Saturday morning.
California Street, "C" Street as Southern Californians
refer to it, is a nice right break with occasional lefts. The break,
over a rock and sand bottom, peels in from a point near the county fair
When the swell picks up, epic rides can be
plentiful. It's been a few years since I rode it on a great
day...but then, I don't live in the area and usually head for Rincon to
the north or Malibu to the south.
Still, C Street is a place worth
checking out when you're in the area. Locals are friendly to
courteous surf safari-ists, so use your common sense.
