River Jetties Spot Details

fair to great
Most of the time not too bad. But it can get super crowded. You see heavy crowds when the tide has swamped out the rest of North OC.
Summer, Fall, and Winter can all be equally great. Fall is the most consistent.
Sand…really shallow sand, and few rocks near the jetties
Best Swell Direction:
SE-SW (160-210+) and W-NW (260-290)
Best Wind Direction:
N-NE-E, light-moderate Santa Ana winds are the best.
Best Tide:
works on most tides but the an incoming tide helps out more
