 Access

From Pasadena take 210 west to 134 west to 101 north. Drive for ~70 miles until you get to Ventura. Stay on 101 through Ventura and exit at State Beaches/Solimar-Faria/West PCH exit which is the next exit from 101 after you pass Ventura. The exit ramp bears to the left and goes through a tunnel under the freeway. Zero out the odometer as you exit the tunnel. Drive north on PCH for 3 miles. At the 3.1 mile mark there will be houses on your left (ocean side). At the 3.4 mile mark you will come to a clearing between two groups of front-row beach homes. That's Mondo's and there is no sign that says so. You will see a lot of surfers in the bay. Park in the dirt parking lot on the right and watch for a steep curb drop-off if your car has low clearance. Also watch for traffic while crossing the PCH to get to the beach. The parking lot is adjacent to the railroad tracks, trains come thundering quite close. NOTE: There are no public toilets on this beach. You can use a port-a-potty the side of the road by Emma Wood State Beach as you come out of the tunnel, or use the ones to the north of Mondo's.

Atmosphere

There is no doubt... Mondos is the best place in Ventura for beginner surfing. I personally have a 5 year plan of just mastering walking my longboard until I can toe the nose. Mondos is so much fun... so much consistency, no harsh waves, so bliss...

General

This is the supposed "secrect spot" but in reality everyone knows about this surf spot. The Best Spot to learn to surf in the world. For a more advanced surfer who is just looking for a relaxing way to catch a lot of fun little waves this is also a great place. Recently a weird sand bar has formed and there is a strong current that will push you south in a hurry if you cannot make it out quick enough

Good Morning Mondos - Got up early to Surf Mondos, went solo but found about 50 surfers in the water.  Luckily there were lots of waves and I didn't feel crowded.  Got a great session in and mined some stoak for the trip this weekend.
