Located in Santa Barbara, Southern California, Devereux is a pretty good point break that breaks over a rock and sand bottom. The waves here can break for up to 300 meters providing great sections for turns and cruising, as well as the occasional barrel when bigger. There is a bunch of kelp in the lineup here as well as a decent amount of tar from the oil in the area.
What are the best surf conditions for Devereux?
Gets good between head high and triple overhead, works when smaller as well. A longboard is great for here until around the overhead mark when a shortboard should be used. Devereux is best suited to intermediate and advanced surfers. The surf here is semi-consistent (5/10) and usually has a crew on it made up of UCSB students and older locals (6/10). The best winds are from the East, North, and Northeast. The best swells are from the Northwest and West. Works best on a mid-tide.
We recommend wearing a 3/2 wetsuit in the summer here with the warmest water temperature a brisk 17 degrees in August. In winter we recommend a 4/3 when water temperatures fall to 13 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
