Call for Submissions: Oil Piers – Ventura, California

Posted on October 31, 2019

The empty stretch of beach adjacent to and south east of the Mussel Shoals / Little Rincon surf break in Ventura, California used to be called 'Oil Piers' beach due to two oil well piers that used to be there.

It would be so easy to pick up all those stones and deposit them along the left point. There is a slab that is sometimes rideable off the end of the point. If you move enough rocks you could make that wave rideable all the way from the slab take off ...
