Big Lagoon is very easy to find just by knowing the name. From what I’ve seen it breaks probably year round (pending it’s not windy or stormy) I myself have never skimmed there. You have to have a few screws loose if you do. I have seen twelve foot shorebreak there and I wouldn’t doubt if it got bigger. A small wave at this place is about six feet. Very fast and very powerful is the only way to describe it. When I saw it, it was around the beginning of May so I couldn’t really give you accurate info on it now. It seems like it would be worthwhile for some of the pros to check out. Like I said, BIG and NASTY waves. I haven’t made my way up there yet but I will try and get you more info on this place as soon as I can.

Directions- Easy to get to. About a 35 minute drive past Arcata on 101 north. There will be a turnoff before the actual lagoon on your left. It will say Big Lagoon beach parking/campground (something like that, I assure you won’t miss it) Take that road and follow the signs. it is not very far off the road.
