 Washington

USA, North West

Washington can be thought as two zones; The Strait and The Coast. The strait of Juan de Fuca is located on Washington's north coast with surf spots from Near Bay with it 'wedgy' 3rd beach to the mythical waves of Ft.Ebey 80+ miles away. Because the mouth of the Strait is so narrow, 32-40 miles wide, and faces NW it has a limited swell window yet when a NW swell of 9+ ft or so rolls in, the whole coast goes off, mostly left with some rights(the Canada side has mostly rights and really slams on big SW swells in the winter). The coast is a totally different story while there are a few breaks that can get really good they a few and far between in fact the best spots are on the coast side of Neah Bay . The coast is usually blown out in the winter with periods of crisp calm. Spring is windy and unpredictable, summer is fun, small or flat. a good choice on small swell day is to head to La Push where there's a channel to funnel the little bit of energy there is in to the little bay lefts and rights on opposite ends of the beach. As far as the much debated Westport it's a pretty good bet in the summer, exactly where I'd go on summer swells 4-9ft west or less than 9ft NW swells. If the crowds bother you, you can head up to the beach break called Hoebuck up in Neah The other main difference between the two regions is accessibility While the strait has a state hwy running it's length and pretty much any point, creek or river mouth has rideable waves in the right conditions. The coast is a pain in the neck to explore for lack of roads and most of the best spots are on guarded Native lands or a loooong hike most of the spots are north of Westport. Finally a bit a about winter and SW swells if I had my druthers I'd always head to Vancouver Is. and the straits but ferry and borders dull the experience so I'll usually head down to seaside an tackle some juice and really aggro locals (even though I've been down there almost every winter since 1993)

localism is lame - i get skunked a lot trying to surf the straits, and last time i was there i too got vibed, yelled at, dropped in on at the elwha. i hear it's been going down a lot more up there and it's not cool. it won't keep me out of the water, anyone tries anything, i'll call the cops, we got rights in our great country.

Funny about the elwha - I've surfed there numerous times (non-local) and I've seen that guy and he or his friends have never said a word to me, in fact I doubt they've ever even noticed me. I stay lo key, quiet, get my waves, stay outta the way, and keep a smile on my face and I've had no problems. Even the most hardened locals these days know they can't stop everyone so as long as you don't give them a reason, they'll leave you alone and go after the drop-in kook outta towners.

Jeff can't keep me from brown point, I'm native, he's not. - I was born and raised in washington. My brother and I love the outdoor lifestyle we've lived. I recall falling into our outhouse hole when I was about 5. Straight up backwoods livin'. I found surfing at about 20 years old and have grown very passionate for it. 8 years later it still proves to call me to the water. I love surfing. I'll be the guy blowin' snot rockets in the line up, burning all the biggest beach logs I can drag to the fire, and drinking beer all to the music in my head of my brothers' newest song he's written; Girls with chubby legs shouldn't wear UGG boots.
