One of the most secluded surf breaks in the Central Coast is right outside our front door on Moonstone Beach. The surfing is best when strong swells are moving west to southwest while there is low-tide. It is typical to see breaks from 4 – 8 feet. During certain storm periods, waves can be as high as 15 – 20 feet. The shore can be rocky and is best for intermediate or expert surfers.
