Cape Mendocino Professional Review and Guide

"Miles of quality reef and point breaks on an undeveloped and isolated stretch of coast. Cape Mendocino has miles of reef and beach breaks to surf. This is a very beautiful, undeveloped, and isolated stretch of coast; it’s home to numerous bays and points that can serve up excellent waves.

Cape Mendocino can capture swell year-round but is especially good in spring and winter. If you’re looking to surf well-shaped, quality waves all by yourself, this is the place to visit. There are no nearby services, however, so make sure you have plenty of gas, food, and water before you venture out here."
