California’s North Coast is one of the few regions in North America where the summer and winter temperatures are nearly identical. We experience a subtle 8-12 degree drop during the wintertime.

The faint temperature dip brings an increase in strong winter winds, which is ideal for expert surfers and wave watching enthusiasts.
