RE: socal

Mellow spots in SoCal?  Almost a joke, but you are in luck.  The whole clue is dawn patrol, or stay away from the hot spots like the piers, famous breaks, etc.  If you want to try a good wave, hit up 17th street in Huntington Beach.  It is a swell dependant spot, unlike the pier which picks up a lot of different swell directions, but if you hit it on a good day you will have the entire spot to yourself and have a good sandbar break with a reform on the inside.   If you do venture to Huntington pier, the north side is a local heavy spot, the south side is more forgiving of your surfing roots.  I like the wave on the north side better but they gotta like your face or you will get some grief for being there.  Best of luck.

I Surf in and around Hb on a daily. If your a decent surfer and dont hog waves you will get no vibe. If your in the way and suck at life/ surfing someone will be required to say something. its the same thing most places I go.
