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.
