California Mid Tide Surf Spots
It’s little wonder California has become one of the most surf-obsessed regions on the planet with more than 800 miles of coastline directly exposed to the Great Pacific and some of the most famous waves and surf communities in the world. There are a lot of surf spots along the coast, and although there are a lot of breaks along with crowds, you can still find some hidden gems if you look hard enough.
Mid tide is the time that is exactly between the tides, i.e. about 3 hours after high tide and before low tide or the other way around. Surfing at mid tide – as a rule of thumb – means the in between of of fast and hollow waves that occur during low tide and softer waves during High Tide.
