I do not live in the USA. But I recognise California as the probable surfing, cultural centre of the world. So while I had some time at work I thought I would look up a few surf spots on the Californian coast that I had recently seen on a video. Indicators, (wannasurf.com) nice photos, easy access,additional information, "the locals are a pack of arseholes who like to pick fights, beat people up and chase them out of the water!" I appreciate the Californians on this forum but I do'nt think I'll be visiting.
