Session 4022: El Capitan

I was hoping that the competition would have ended, but that was not the case. We checked it out from the freeway and there were the canopies lined up at the beach, so we went to the Ventura spot, but the waves were about the same as yesterday, so we just turned around and decided to head home with one stop at El Capitan State Park.

This turned out to be a very nice camp ground, so if we are going there again on a camping trip, I think we will want to stay here. Of all the places this campground looked to have the most “natural” looking setup with trees and a mountain in the background and magnificent views of points.

From the main parking we could not initially think that this is any special spot to surf as it looked like standard beach breaks, but we walked further South and there was a little “corner” with a reef and there some people were surfing small point breaks.

The breaking area was a bit too small and there were 4 other surfers competing in this small zone, but there were quick hit to chest size consistent point breaks that were happening. If it sizes up a bit, we could have spread out a bit and would have been a lot of fun.

Glad that we stopped there. I surfed there for about an hour and decided to head back North.
