 Informations supplémentaires

Good spot in the winter when the swells come in from the NW. Best when a strong 4-6 foot swell comes through. Summer kinda sucks - it doesnt hold the southwest very well. Best with peaky crossed up swell combos.

Atmosphère

If you can surf, youll do just fine. There are alot of longboarders in the summer and on small days when the surf isnt challenging. When it gets bigger, the pack gets small when it gets big - plus with cold water and sewage (on occasion) it can clean out the lineup.

Général

Overall, El Puko is an ok spot in the winter, kinda lame in the summer. If you catch it on a good day, its as good as any in cali.
Porto is clean, check the beach report card @ healthebay.com, it gets execptional well results

- Been surfing here for about 20 years. Usually only fun during the Winter.

Usually a pretty high kook count most of the year -- guys in monster trucks, mohawks, tourists, loud mouths, etc... But when it hits 10 foot plus on the face, the kooks clean out, and you will see a lot of the local chargers getting shacked out there.

When it hit 15 foot plus on the face, Porto can be pretty unforgiving. Getting caught on the inside at the rip in front of the bathrooms can get pretty painful. On bigger days, bring a thicker board with good paddling power. You don't want to get nailed by the cleanup sets.

good and bad - Surfed here pretty much exclusively in the late 80s. I lived in El Segundo and surfed this area sometimes twice a day for 5 years straight. Porto's pretty consistent, but got way too crowded on the weekends even back then (it is L.A.). Can't imagine what it's like now...glad I don't live there anymore. Only thing I miss is Porto (and most of the south bay) got most of the hurricane swells that basically don't make it up to many spots north of Point Conception.

Too damn crowded, but has its days - Lived here my entire life, been surfing for at least fifteen years, I can say this, fifteen years ago there was less then 1/4 of the amount of people out than there is today. El Porto has just become wayy to crowded now, shoulder to shoulder, and its only getting worse. Labor day weekend was unreal, I could not believe the number of people out in the water, people stacked on top of each other. From the jetty to Manhattan pier it seemed that there wasn't more than 5 feet of ocean to be seen between the people in the lineup. I blame it on the overpopulation of this area, as well as surfing becoming "mainstream", and the thing to do when you move here, when it used to be esoteric. It seems that every mid-westerner wants to move to California and become a surfer.

El Porto definitely has its days, but even on flat days there is simply too many people out... I mean, what are they surfing? Do the mid westerners just like the look of a surfboard in their hand? I cant count the times I've had to pass up surfing El Porto on fun looking days because of the crowd. It sucks cause there really aren't too many other options without driving an hour away.
