Mondos Beach



Mondos is a small,  right point break located between Carpinteria and Ventura. It is a very soft wave, which is great for beginners.In fact, Mondos is widely known for being one of the best places in the world to learn to surf and SUP.

What Makes It Great

Due to a sandbreak, there are consistently small, rolling, 3-5 foot waves that are great for newbies. The waves are also mellow and usually long, so bring your longboard. The vibe here is also more mellow than other nearby surf spots along the coast, which makes it a bit more friendly for the beginner or younger crowd. You can make a day of it, as there are plenty of spots on the sand to put out an umbrella and beach towel. A few fine details: limited parking is available. Be prepared for weekend crowds. Winter surf also brings more riders to the water. There are no bathrooms onsite. Have fun learning to surf at Mondos!

Who is Going to Love It

New and young surfers will love the reliable and mellow waves. It's a fun beach in general, though getting there earlier in the day will help you secure parking.
