Located in Southern Orange County, Southern California, Corona Del Mar Jetty is an excellent jetty break. On its day it peels for up to 150 meters to the right, delivering lovely walls for turns, carves, and even the occasional barrel. Be aware that the waves here are usually a bit tricky to surf.
What are the best surf conditions for Corona del Mar Jetty?
Gets good at head high and holds up to triple overhead (unlikely to be that big). A shortboard is the way to go here. Intermediate and advanced surfers will have success here, beginners not so much. The surf here is somewhat consistent (5/10) and will be very crowded when it breaks (9/10). Needs a big South or Southwest swell to start breaking. The best winds are from the North, which is also the prevailing wind direction. Needs a low tide to break.
We recommend wearing a 3/2 wetsuit in the summer when the water temps rise to 20 degrees. In the winter a 4/3 is best when the water temperatures drop to 15 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
