El Porto is a beach community that is part of northernmost Manhattan Beach, a city in the South Bay area of Greater Los Angeles in Southern California. El Porto is well known for being a great beginner and intermediate surf spot.
The fast and powerful break, 3-10 ft swells, and sandy bottom make it a fun and safe place to shred! The weekends at El Porto can be ultra crowded, as can the weekdays during peak season. During the winter there are some bigger swells where more advanced surfers can come ply their trade. Also, the El Porto Surf School and Camp Surf are two of the top nearby surf schools and rental shops. Enjoy surfing at the classic El Porto!
