Pismo Beach’s legendary waves inspire surfers to travel long and far to enjoy epic surf sessions along this Central Coast playground. The historic Pismo Beach Pier is a favorite surf spot, known for its shapely consistent waves, gentle beach slope and exhilarating rights. As the pier is lit at night, thrill-seekers often head out for moonlight surf sessions.
All levels of surfers can enjoy the surf scene at Pismo Beach, but of course the level of intensity and wave height can change on any given day, depending on the weather and swell. Newbies and groms should be sure to take surf lessons and learn water safety tips and surfer etiquette to make the experience more enjoyable for everyone.
Dangerous surf conditions and riptides can occur so be sure to review surf reports to assess conditions or check in with the local surf shops and professionals to assess the surf. Lifeguards are on duty seasonally at Pismo Beach from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.
