Other Fields
in the Area:
Next closest field that I've played at is Urban Quest (3 hrs. south). Breakout is a totally different experience. Urban's fields are dirt, so you and your equipment get pretty dirty—especially when it has just rained. Refs at Urban are decent, but Breakout's are the best I've seen (I've played at 10 different fields in Washington and California).
Review: Breakout just opened and I wasn't expecting much from the only field on the central coast. I thought the paint would be outrageously expensive and the fields sub-par. This wasn't the case at all. The fields were excellent and prices were good on three grades of Diablo paint (started at $45/case and it is field paint only).

Currently, Breakout has three fields—a small sup'air, larger sup'air and a third field that has old VW Beatles, hay bales and what not. All fields are on this thick wild grass. It's great because you don't have as much cleaning to do of your clothes or equipment at the end of the day like you would with a dirt field. That someone in the middle of the central coast has sprung for this type of expense (sup'air fields run 3.5K+ in addition to leasing good land) is pretty impressive.

All fields, especially the sup'air, are well laid out and fun to play on. Fields are mirrored, so they're balanced. The only twist is that they're on a slight hill. It is slight though, and you don't notice it that much when you're playing.

Players there were great to play with, including the novice team that was there. Absent, at least the day I played, was the stereotypical in-your-face loud-mouth present at most fields.

You also chrono before every game. Reffing was great and safety at the field was excellent. Reminders were there if you forgot to put your barrel condom on. Ref's were responsive in games, mature, and surprisingly good natured. It's rare to find ambassadors of the sport that make experienced and new players feel welcome. I think these guys pull this off.

I talked to the owners. They're very personable. A new scenario field is going in that should be a lot of fun. They may also open a second store. Excited about this as it will be closer to where I live. I'm hopeful it will carry more high-end stuff that Big Boys Toys doesn't.

I'm defiantly going back (after I get rid of my existing paint). It's nice to have a well run field on the central coast.
