 Additional Information

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.

General

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.
