Ft Ebey is a consistent break compared to Seaman Spit.
Yes, this is a real break. Few people have ever surfed here because this wave requires gusting winds (35-45+) out of the NW to produce the right waves. Best conditions occur when there is a strong storm overnight and then the wind dies right at daybreak leading to glassy conditions.
If you're lucky enough to see this breaking, grab your board and get in the water quick. It may not break again for a month.
This break continues to remain ridden by only a few people in the know in NW Washington. Originally it was though to only break once to twice a year but over time we've found it breaks around 10-15 times a year.

Good winter and spring strong winds - Been enough high winds out of the NW this winter and spring that I surfed out here 4 times in the last couple of months. Not bad for inland surfing with no exposure to the open ocean.

Two sessions in one week at the spot - Ankle biters 9/26/09 - but surfable.
