Easton Gym El Porto Surf Cam and Report

El Porto is a seaside community located in the South Bay area of the Greater Los Angeles metropolitan footprint. The beach itself is protected as part of the State of California State Parks system, and is located between Manhattan Beach and Dockweiler. The beach and community get their name from a mix of Portuguese and Spanish, being loosely translated as “The Port”. The beach provides a range of amenities for visitors, including a bike trail adjoining the beach with roller skate and bicycle rentals conveniently located. Metered parking, volleyball courts, and restrooms add to the experience.

El Porto has long been a popular surfing destination for Southern California locals and travelers alike. Variable conditions are a hallmark of this beach break, with waves breaking to the left or right as winds and currents affect swells. One of the unique features of the El Porto break is that just offshore, a deepwater canyon and inshore sandbars both combine to help to push swells higher than in neighboring breaks. Therefore El Porto tends to be consistent, even when other beaches along California’s coast are reporting flat conditions. It is not uncommon to find overhead waves here, which helps cement the break as one of the surfing community’s favorite spots.
