Atmosphere

seal beach ss summer time= as flat as lake but winter= you will never see any where else like this there is sometimes a back wash on the wave witch creates massive barells two times as big as the hight of the wave. there are also waves off the pier but a crowded spot. there also a spot way way out called clouds it is at the end of the jetti and one time there was guys towing into 10ft surf out there and they rode the way all the way to the beach it was the longest ride i have ever seen. South side is also good becasue usually when O.C. gets a 10ft swell during the winter it is walled up and closing out but if you go to the south side there are perfect peaks and maybe stand up barells

its a fun spot
