Located in Southern Oregon, Coos Bay is a collection of surf spots in an area full of bays, coves, and estuaries (take time to explore and you’ll find some waves). This will focus on the main beach break, Bastendorff Beach. The waves here are pretty easy to surf and break for up to 50 meters, providing some great sections for manoeuvres. This beach break as opposed to almost every other spot in the Pacific NW is a bit polluted, so watch out.
What are the best surf conditions for Coos Bay?
Gets good between waist high and triple overhead. We recommend riding a longboard when smaller and a shortboard at this spot when bigger. This beach is suitable for all types of surfers depending on the size of the swell. The surf here usually has a wave (5/10) and is generally uncrowded (4/10). The best winds are offshore from the Southeast. The best swells come from the North, Northwest, Southwest, and West. Works on all tides.
We recommend wearing a 5/4 wetsuit in the summer when water temps rise to 13 degrees. Same attire in winter when water temps drop a bit to 10 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
