About Topanga State Beach

Long righthand pointbreak at the base of Topanga Canyon near Topanga Creek; best shape is with a strong W swell and mid to low tide. Some good sections. The outer section is known as Boomers, which is shorter but more powerful than the main wave. Can handle up to double-overhead. Not as perfect as Malibu but not quite as crowded either. Still, it can be a high-quality wave.

Site of psychedelic-era experimentation and hedonism, a bit of throw-back localism endures. Pay to park lot off PCH.
