Tijuana Sloughs is the break where the Tijuana rivermouth meets the Pacific Ocean. It is actually easiest to access Sloughs from Imperial Beach, since getting there from Playas de Tijuana would mean paddling north across the border and could result in attracting attention from the Border Patrol. This is a wave that changes greatly depending on the season, the amount of recent rainfall and swell direction. It is usually best in the wintertime on the big Northwest swells. Tijuana Sloughs is a series of cobblestone reefs that can handle waves over triple overhead. That said, it is somewhat of a mysto spot since the takeoff zone is shifty and there is a tendency for sneaker sets to come out of nowhere and blow through the lineup. There have been occasions after heavy rainfall where the runoff from the river groomed the cobblestone and sand to create a spot-on impersonation of Kirra, however the water color resembled chocolate milk and random debris from the Tijuana river riddled the lineup. Make sure you get a hepatitis shot if you are going to attempt surfing in those conditions. The other thing to consider is that there have been numerous shark sightings at the Sloughs. This wave is not recommended for the faint of heart or inexperienced surfers.Updated: Feb 27, 2013 01:49 PM
