Located in Del Norte County, California, Point St. George is a quality left-hand point/reef set-up that offers up good powerful walls and barrels when the conditions line up. The waves here are heavy and break for up to 200 meters over a slab of reef. Needs a big swell to start working due to an offshore reef. Check the beach break to the North for some quality peaks.
