Point Arena Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This is a world-class surf spot south of Mendocino. Point Arena is home to two excellent breaks: a classic outside right on the north side of the pier, and a quality left point break just south of it.

The right is thick and fast with a steep takeoff and can hold up to 20 feet. The left is more of a peeling wave and can hold a 10-foot swell. The right is more protected and can produce a longer ride than the more exposed left. The safest and easiest way to access either break is to paddle out through the channel by the pier."
