Generally easy to moderate surfing, Seal Beach
River Jetty is home to a regular crowd of firemen, students and a mostly
local crowd that enjoys the easy access to this spot in Seal Beach.
To the right with the sail boat shark-like fin sneaking up is some challenging
surf called barracuda. This is the rock formed jetty of the Long Beach Peninsula and Alamitos Bay. To the left toward the beach (not visible
in this picture) is Seal Beach Pier in the distance and is Crabs where
the river jetty meets the sand.
This fireman who drove an old purple classic his kids
call "Barney" threw in some other information. His dad used to run
concessions down at the old Long Beach Pike which had amusement rides back
in the 60's and before that time.
The fireman had to boogey off to work and go save
lives so he couldn't talk anymore. He said that River Jetty is his favorite
spot to surf. The crowd is mellow, the waves are nice and there's a great,
surfer, friendly restaurant right there on the beach, serving up breakfast,
lunch and dinner.
