T Street: a normally sloppy reef break just south of the San Clemente Pier, pictured above during one of its finer moments. As sloppy and as full of lumpy sections as it usually is though, this spot and other relatively low quality beach breaks in S.C. have been a breeding ground for very good surfers. Not only do the breaks in town have their moments, it doesn't hurt that Trestles is just south of town and Salt Creek is just a few minutes north. That said, what I like most about T Street is that it can hold some size. My favorite combination of conditions there is a hefty SW at low tide. The rights may be ridden the longest then, all the way onto the inside sandbar where you can sometimes get royally shacked.
