Interested in telling a good surf story?
While you could spin a yarn about a world famous spot like Rincon or Teahupoo, if you really want to blow the groms’ minds, tell them a story about surfing Point Mugu, one of the most mysto spots in Southern California. As Point Mugu sits on a Naval Base, it is impossible to gain access to the aqueous treasures for the average civilian and considering sneaking on to a Naval base could be met with death, dismemberment, imprisonment and huge fines, surfing Point Mugu is pretty much out of the question. The legend and lore of Point Mugu, an empty sand-bottomed hybrid of The Wedge and Pipeline, continues to grow.
That being said, our good friends at the Naval Base Ventura County gave us an early Christmas present by putting on the second annual Point Mugu Surf Contest last weekend. The contest gave a few lucky surfers and over 5,000 spectators an opportunity to see Point Mugu in action. While the first day of the contest offered mediocre waves, the second day verified the stories of surfing Point Mugu.
