North of Pismo is Avila Beach. There's a surf spot at Avila Beach with a left breaking wave off the reef that peels down the beach. Surf is best at a low or medium tide because high tide you have to paddle around the cliff. Works best in the summer or on a big south or southwest swells. Avila Beach is a touristy area and the surf spots don’t draw huge crowds in the lineup.
