Be Aware & Stay Safe
Intermediate to Advanced Surfers
The crowd at PB Point isn’t as friendly as the rest of PB, but it’s not as localized as some spots to the north in La Jolla. Again, the spot is ideal for intermediate to advanced surfers.
Even those who are familiar with the surf need to concentrate to avoid crashing into nearby rocks, so the vibe can be a little tense out on the water. That said, so long as you know what you’re doing and respect surf etiquette, you should be fine.
Locals aren’t so forgiving about their parking though. On a good surf day, you’d be better off parking along the streets or in nearby public parking.
Beware of the Reef
Once you’re in the water, you’ll want to paddle out straight and to the north of the point. Beware that rocks riddle the ground, from the beach to beneath the surface, so you’ll probably want to wear booties.
Giant boulders protrude from the waves, so you’ll need to have firm control of your board and strong steering capabilities. If you don’t, you’ll likely collide with a rock.
No Facilities or Amenities
PB Point does not have amenities. This means you’ll need to bring your own gear for rinsing off. There are no restrooms, water fountains or other facilities to speak of.
