Ready to ride some waves?

Locals know that Ventura County Coast is one of the best places to surf in the country, but they’re not the only ones. Surfer.com, the digital version of shredding mainstay Surfer Magazine, has named Ventura and its surrounding cities some of the best surfing towns in America.

Now is the perfect time to experience firsthand the killer curls off our beautiful coast. Whether this is your first time riding the waves or you’re a seasoned pro, Ventura County Coast’s breathtaking surf spots have something for everyone.

Rincon Point State Beach

People come from all over the world to surf the famous Rincon Classic. Considered one of America’s top surfing destinations, “The Queen of the California Coast” offers three great locations that provide constant, steady sets: The Cove, Rivermouth, and Indicator. The south-facing point creates epic right waves when a good swell comes in.

Port Hueneme Beach

With consistent foam, Port Hueneme Beach is a trustworthy surf spot any time of the year. It’s often uncrowded with plenty of peaks and an incredible beach break.

Silver Strand Beach

Silver Strand Beach in Oxnard is a favorite spot for the locals. This mile-long beach is split into three sections: The Jetty, The Bowl, and La Jenelle. The areas to the side (The Jetty and La Jenelle) are more suited for those new to surfing, swimming, or boogie boarding because of smaller waves and swells that typically stay around 3 to 5 feet. The Bowl has much harder sandbar waves. For people wanting to take surfing lessons, Silver Strand Surf School offers private individual and group sessions with equipment included.m

C Street/Surfer’s Point

Near the Ventura Pier, C Street/Surfer’s Point is one of the most well-known spots to surf in Ventura. Right-hand waves come from the west and curl consistently around the point. It’s a popular spot for longboarders and shortboarders who want to catch a long wave toward the pier. Check out Ventura Surf Shop for rentals and far-out swag.

County Line Beach

County Line Beach has good waves to surf year-round. Not only will you get amazing views of the California coastline, you’ll also most likely see dolphins, seals, and even whales. It’s a great spot for beginners to learn because of the variety of waves that break there.

Whichever location you choose, you’re sure to have a blast surfing the waves and soaking up the sun on Ventura County Coast!
