Atmosphere

A fun fast wave, which can be great if all conditions come together. Crowding and localism are rare but have been experienced here.

Hey Local - Hey Loco, I m from Malibu Ca, trust me, you have no idea what localism is, I will teach you if you want in a way you will never forget, this planet is for everyone who respects others and its enviroment. You just crawl back into your cave if you can't handle it
