Looking for some urban wave-watching? The winter breaks at Fort Point can create quite a stir. It’s a gnarly scene—and not just because of the rocks in the water. The surfers can be intensely territorial too. For most, this is a spectator sport; we’re not recommending you participate. But if there are offshore winds, and a good northwest swell, grab a thermos of hot chocolate, turn up the heat in your car and settle down for a good show: if you’re lucky, you’ll see a beginning long-boarder try to catch a wave. Up, up, and—ooh! That’s gotta hurt. Good times!
