Welcome to the 1000 Steps Beach!
If you are in California and you record sounds then you have to record at a beach!
Recording at the 1000 Step Beach will be the first one that I recorded for you, but I promise not the last!
So what is the Thousand Steps Beach and where is it located?
Let me give you a little tour!
The Thousand Steps Beach is one of the largest beaches in South Laguna Beach and only 20 minutes drive from my place in Costa Mesa! Before you arrive the Beach make sure to come very early because parking is limited on the streets and if you want a spot, seriously you have to come early or you need to walk a mile or two if you don’t want a friendly ticket from the Orange County Police Department! The beach itself is not hard to find anymore because the Thousand Step Beach is getting more and more popular for runners who run up and down the steps the whole day long! So look out for the crowd or click on this LINK for the exact location!
Ok, but seriously these are not 1000 Steps! I remember a few years ago running 4000 Steps with a length of 1.5 km and a tilt up to 86% in Montafon, Austria! That was fun! If this run still exists just Google for “Treppenlauf Montafon”! The actual number of the steps is 223 ;)!
Back to the Beach!
If you down by the beach, you see 400 yards wide sandy beach with volleyball courts, restrooms, tide pools and caves on the left and on the right side. There is a large cave at the south end of Thousand Steps Beach but when the tide is too high you have no chance to walk through. That is the same on the right side! Unfortunately, this beach, known as Totuava, is only accessible when the tide is low. I had no chance at this time to walk along this tunnel with all my equipment!
Here are the exact locations where I recorded the sounds around 9 am!
The Equipment we used to capture the sound and the video + the Software that we used to edit the sound and the videos!
Rode W6 Windshield
Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017
Adobe Audition CC 2017
If you record with this equipment you have always people who ask you what you are doing so I had some nice conversations!
We really hope these sounds help you out in any way and you can use it in your next project!
