Surfing Naples, Santa Barbara

naples santa barbara waves

Naples is a secluded right reef break just north of Goleta (see map below).  Life most of the waves in this area, it takes a solid west swell to get going.  But even

when the waves aren’t pumping, Naples is a peaceful place to paddle out and enjoy the rural area that was almost developed into a housing community.

Access to Naples is somewhat restricted; you’ll need to park along the 101 and walk about 10 minutes to the beach, across private farmland.  The other option is to walk north from Haskel’s beach on a low-tide (there is no beach on a high-tide).

Chances are, if there are waves at Naples, there are better waves nearby.
