Just outside of Coos Bay is an exposed beach break that has quite reliable surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. The best wind direction is from the southeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the optimum swell angle is from the west. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. Best around mid tide. It very rarely gets crowded here. Beware of rips, sharks and pollution.
Offshore on winter S winds, the various peaks are loosely divided into spots like South End, Gray Houses, Middles, Crappers (a.k.a. Shitters), and North End. Good all tides except extreme high and low. Rips at point or jetty ends, depending on swell direction.
