The Central California coast between San Francisco and Point Arguello is one of the world’s most fickle, weather-beaten, rugged, frustrating and beautiful stretches of shoreline in the world. Surf-wise, it’s magically diverse, picking up the same swells and winds that buffet NorCal year-round, but here the coast angles a bit more to the SE (not to mention the S-facing haven of Santa Cruz), which offers some respite from the wind. Central California is a veritable paradise for the persistent surf-seeker who doesn’t mind icy water, narrow serpentine roads, or the virtually inevitable disappointment of fluctuating wave quality.
