Named After The Jetty

Well protected by northwest winds, a collector for south swells, The Jetty is mostly even-tempered throughout the year. You can always find a wave at the Jetty, which has a characteristic "reverb" wave that gets its height and shape from classical physics - constructive wave interference resulting from a combination of a man-made jetty that is roughly at a right angle to the beach, forcing two waves to come together and create an explosion both incredibly steep and often times hollow. It is an easy paddle out and well viewed from Highway 1. Late take-offs are normal due to the immense energy created by the confluence of two waves, resembling a surfable Sandy Beach or even the Wedge. Most of the locals are quite friendly and this is where everyone can enjoy the surf.
