      Leadbetter Point is located just north of Santa Barbara Harbor. It's the most popular Santa Barbara surf break. Exit 101 at Castillo (southbound), or Bath (northbound). Follow directions to Santa Barbara Harbor. Suggest driving north on Shoreline Blvd. to check Leadbetter first. Park in the free lot at the south end of Shoreline Park. Leadbetter is a friendly open-road break. Share the waves with boogie-boarders. Generally a slow mushy wave favored by a mix of geginners and longboarders. These days, stand-up surfers can be seen paddling off the point. Amenities include bathrooms at Shoreline Park. Local tip: walk along the fence at Shoreline Park and check the surf north of Leadbetter. We've surfed fun waves that break the length of Shoreline Park to Thousand Steps.
