If there’s an ocean coastline, there’s surfing, and Ocean Shores is no exception. This coastal Washington town is known for reliable surf and is something everyone should experience during their visit. By booking your stay with Oyhut Bay Seaside Village, you’ll be close to area surf shops and some of the best surfing spots in Washington.
Your Guide to Surfing in Ocean Shores
Before setting off for your surfing adventure, be sure to check the surf forecast. This will help you know when the chances for catching reliable waves are. The surfing spots around Ocean Shores are often less crowded than what you would find in other surfing locations, like California.
Since 1995, North Coast Surf Shop has been fulfilling the surf and skating needs of Ocean Shores visitors and locals. This full-service surf shop has everything you need, from rentals to lessons to wetsuits. As the waters around Ocean Shores can be cold, a wetsuit is almost as important as a surfboard.
If you are new to surfing, let the local experts show you the ropes by booking your surf lesson, which includes a surfboard and wetsuit.
For experienced surfers, get fitted with the perfect rental board and get on your way. There are two ideal surfing spots around town.
- The North Jetty: The Jetty, which is on the south end of Ocean Shores, is known for waves that hold up to 10 feet. Word of caution: anything over that makes for a tough paddle out.
- Damon Point: If the waves are too big at the Jetty, visit Damon Point. This peninsula sticks out inside North Bay. The waves break close to the beach, which means an easy paddle out for you and fellow surfers.
When renting your equipment, ask the employees at North Coast for their recommendation of where that day’s best surfing can be found.
