Surf Willow Creek


Added by Elena Pearson

A punchy wave in Big Sur.

Willow Creek is a couple of miles south of Sand Dollar Beach. Sand Dollar is generally a mushier wave that is more welcoming. Willow Creek on the other hand, has more power and offers punchier waves for the more experienced. However, it is more fickle than Sand Dollar Beach. There are loads of kelp in the line up, so try not to get too tangled!
