Birdrock Spot Guide

Birdrock is basically 2 reef breaks, north and south, nestled between Pacific Beach and Windansea. South swells have trouble wrapping around in to these surf spots, causing long lulls in the surf during the summer months, although long period swells that do get in can produce quality surf. North Bird rock is known for being able to handle large surf that closes out or swamps other San Diego surf spots. When the surf is working there will be beautiful, hollow waves and clear water. Both spots generally prefer low to medium tides.
