During the winter, Topanga is the most consistent and best spot in the LA area. As long as you have a solid north swell and a high tide, Topanga is almost always pumping. The only problem with Topanga.Topanga is best during the winter, and isn’t even worth the trip during the summer because other spots near by are better on south swells. There are many spots that are close by that break better on south swells.
To get to Topanga, take PCH to Topanga canyon bvld. To the north of the intersection is a parking lot for the beach. sometimes you can snag a spot right above the skim beach in the parking on the shoulder of PCH.
