Looking for Surf Spot in LA/Ventura County, CALIFORNIA« on: November 21 2006 15:11:00 »
Ill be back in Los Angeles over turkey weekend. I was hoping to surf ventura county but didnt know any good breaks. I have been to El Porto in LA, but absolutely hated it. Im from san diego, so el porto is just absolute garbage. Im tempted to just get on PCH in Oxnard and drive north to find a spot.
The one thing i disgust is huge crowds. How are the crowds in Ventura during the winter?

Well lets see...
There's Hollywood by the Sea in Oxnard, Ventura Pier, Fairgrounds, Rincon Del Diablo. IMHO, those are about the best breaks in the area. I used to live in Ventura, and now live in San Diego. Agreed, most 95%, LA breaks suck, El Porto is about the best of them since they expanded the breakwater at Marina Del Rey and shut down Ballona Creek, the bastids...

I'm a decent shortboard surfer from long Island and plan to go to the Four Seasons resort in April. I was wondering if anyone knows if there will be waves this time a year and if its even worth bringing my board. If there are could I please have the name of a decent low key less crowded surf spot. Also is the water cold? Boots and Gloves???

I heard you guys in California have the Africanised Killer bees living with ya. Now, Not only do you have to deal with your earthquakes, Now you have to deal with Honey Bees that will sting you to death. I guess the beach is the only safe place to go.

Sooner or later the whole southern half of the USA will have to deal with them. Whats gonna suck now, is that the price of surf wax will go up. Those AHB's don't produce as much honey as the Europeans bees do.
My friends apt/ building was closed off two weeks ago, because they found a nest of them in a palm tree. They got rid of the nest and sent some of the dead bee's to a science lab. Turned out, They were of the Africanised breed. Wer'e gonna call them Nigger bees.

The Family Apidae (bees for all you U.S.C. Neanderthals) is doing just fine with solitary species that synthesize chaparral flower honey into fine oils, lignins, and complex carbohydrates(waxes) meaning organic, safe surf-riding vehicles for all of us well into the future. We just need to take the killer species and train them to sting Orangeless County Evangelicals so we can ensure survival for all of nature's diversity.

Sorry to hear of that you didn't enjoy El Porto. It's true that it can suck here and there are kooks everywhere. Try surfing it when it gets big and the kooks stay on the beach. Anyway , we don't need anymore people in the water. So, go to Ventura!
