About Mondos

Mondos is a great alternative for surfers seeking another option to the busy locations around the region. The waves here are usually a bit smaller, but Mondos picks up most swell directions and is rideable during most swell events. The majority of surfers ride longboards, as the break generally consists of a few soft, slow peeling peaks. On a medium-low tide the waves can peak up quite nicely and the rights can run along the break in a point-like fashion. Just be careful for those slippery rocks when you are climbing down to go surf.
