Marina Herzliya - We`re talking about the north side of the Marina (the entrance & exit to the port). This beach 'fires' in the Winter (that includes November thru` April).Because of the Marina wave - barrier & the wave-barrier on the north -side of the break it`s protected against winter 'northerlies'. The bottom is sand & when the big winter waves come stomping-in they jack-up first off the south-point & again off the north-point. The 1st break presents a 2 - 3 metre peak peeling frontside & the 2nd break comes-in @ 11/2 - 2metres peeling front & backside. Then it WACKS the sandbar beach-breaking & barreling-out. Long rides can be had if you pick-up on the first outside break & then connect with the second break (long is like 150 metres). Usually the 'pros'/'vets' wait for the outside 1st break (the 'drop' is their orgasm!)& the super-groms & kamikazes pick-up on the more radical 2nd break. Vibes are ALWAYS good here & the locals are 'ucla'( real-nice). There`s plenty of room for eveyone here, even on a 'crowded' day. In winter check-out the 'teenie-weenies' (groms) with the surf-school & you`ll realize why Israeli surfers are gung-ho, feerless & skilled in their 'blessed sport'(Believe me I`ve seen these little kids @ the school cry when the instructor pulls-em out @ the end of their lesson).May thru` October is okay but preety powerless. You occasionaly do get that 'rogue super-swell' which 'brings everything together' - classic offshores until 10am & awesome perfection until nightfall. If you`re visiting the Marina is a must. During the summer flaccid waves the compensation for all you horny bastards are the babes!!!

californian... - i was in the maldives and indo and got to surf with alot of israeli surfers. you can say israeli this israeli that, but i never had problems with them and the only time and last that an israeli dropped in on me he oppoligised and paddled to the next peak. it is right that sometimes you get to surf with some annoying but that includes the hole world: americanos, japs, italians, brazilians and alot more... and and dont get fooled when someone is beeing an asshole dont hate their hole contry!!
