Amazing Facts on Austinmear - This is the truth:1) There are no sharks, it is shark protected.2) There is always a wave to catch.3) It does get a little crowded on weekends.4) There are no angry locals, it is a family spot.5) Don't bash the people who drop in because they arelike 5 yrs old and don't know any better, and their dads will probably smack you the fuck out, I would!6) Some of the chick lifesavers are freaking hot!Austinmear is a family beach you idiots, there is no point trying to protect it because everyone already knows about it. If you go down there with an attitude you probably WILL get fucked up, by a group of angry fathers. Go there to relax and have fun and you will have a great day. Don't be a dick.
