    Anderson St, Sunset Beach

    I remember in the 90s I stayed at the 777 inn in sunset beach, and a lot of times instead of making the drive to h.b I would surf out front at anderson st. I actually caught one of the most memorable days of surfing there. I was wondering if it still got fun...

    The drowning topic made me think of that...and i pray for the victim and his family.

    indeed it is. a mellower, shallower break than BC or HB, but also seems less windy. i surf at 5th with a friend who lives in the condos across pch. ya just gotta watch for the stingrays

    Do you mean 5th in H.B? I remember especially when H.B got macking and/or closing out a lot...anderson st would remain more rideable..still doing that deal?

    5th in seaside, sunset beach. to clarify, sunset /seaside are just north of bolsa chica, which are all the northern extreme of hb. and yes, it seems that the long beach bay effect makes sunset in general glassier and more rideable, but alas, smaller.....i have never gone to sunset and had it be choppier than HB or BC but i have seen it absolutely flat (like sat eve, for example), which is quite rare south of there.

    just being clear

    buddy lives next to bay off of 5th. i drive from IE to meet him there to surf each friday. the rest of the time i usually go to bolsa or hb state, the latter of which i've been going to since the 70's. we sometimes drag the boards to the cliffs...as you may know, they reopened the harbor estuary with a boulder jetty just north of seapointe at the south bolsa/north dog beach juncture. it has created a nice long mellow break as the sand has built up and out on the south side (dog beach/boxcars) that extends about 100-500 yards south of the rocks, but on the north side it is super surge-y and quite agitated (the red zone in the photo)...but the waves do tend to get big there first if there is a build-up. http://bp1.blogger.com/_kDyTcbycWv4/...olsa-Chica.jpghttp://bp1.blogger.com/_kDyTcbycWv4/...olsa-Chica.jpg
