About Cabrillo Beach, California, USA
Cabrillo Beach is located on the south eastern
tip of the beautiful Palos Verdes Peninsula. It is to the northwest of the Belmont Shores and usually has the strongest winds in the LA area.
The best months are from April to October on a SW direction. The wind is light in the mornings and builds to 13 – 26 knots towards the afternoons. The wind can change very quickly from 10 knots SW to a solid or gusty 25knots W.
Cabrillo has both the open ocean for riding the chop and flat water bay conditions on opposite sides of the same beach. The beach is partly sandy and partly concrete and the water is clean. It is recommended for advanced riders due to the large rocks, the jetty in
the water directly downwind of the launch area and gusty, strong winds. The launch area is limited due to there only being one spot upwind to launch and land which is less gusty. It is not the best wave riding spot and the swells create a bad shore break and wind-driven chop.
is not allowed at this spot on weekends, from Memorial Day in May through to Labor Day in September. Lifeguards may prevent riding at any time, based on their opinion of beach occupancy.
