Went down with a friend and rented him a board.  We both caught our first waves where we were able to stand up all of the way to the shore (10s+).  After catching our first good ones, we managed to catch a lot of lesser rides (4-5s). 

Water was dirty and there was a ton of trash and even some used tampons in the water.  My eyes burned some and got a bit blurry from the polluted water.  The rocks on the shore really hurt our feet when we exited the water. There were broken nails and broken glass all over the parking lot and the dirt areas that separated the sidewalk from the rock beach.  Going to have to buy surfing booties just to manage all this crap.  The waves are great but the evironment around the beach is really frustrating and dirty.

Can't wait to get good enough to go somewhere in the south that's more clean and actually be able to catch waves there.
