More on Drakes Estero
Located in Marin County, California, Drakes Estero is a good river mouth/estero that offers up some fast tubes when the conditions line up. The waves here can be a bit tricky to surf and break for up to 100 meters over the sandbars. This spot is one of the hottest spots for Great Whites in all of California. It is common to see multiple sharks feeding here when checking the waves. Don’t surf outgoing, the current becomes a river and will take you straight into packs of our finned friends who are most likely to feed on the outgoing water rich with seals. A lot of Marin surfers will not surf here due to the shark risk, so don’t expect crowds.
