Your Passion for the Waves Starts Here:
Our Surfing Guide to Pismo Beach, CA
Our oceanfront hotel near San Luis Obispo is pleased to offer uninterrupted stretches of coastline. The wide-open waters leave plenty of room for the beginner, as well as the seasoned surfer to enjoy a good break. Known for its waves all year round, Pismo Beach is known for its barrels - especially in the winter - where surfers are likely to experience a good break at the pier, with the best swell direction from the southwest. The south side of the Pismo Pier is typically better for surfing than the north, and the further south you venture from the pier, the more secluded the water tends to be. Please note, in the winter we highly recommend wet suits for the cooler water temps.
