General

Quite a few nitwit locals. Blows out easily. When bolinas is flat, this place can be good, but there must be no onshore wind.

Localism - The locals that surf RCA are FAR from wealthy....no SUV driving moms out here either + that guys story is wrong, cant even drive to the beach let alone see it from the road...Super tidal and fickle, your not going score it unless you know a local. If you do go out there, dont bring any friends or a long board and you might get some waves depending on whos out. If your a dick....you WILL get heckled out of the water and your car WILL get trashed...

I heard a story - A story about some boys at rca burning and taunting a man to the point of pissing him off enough to want to fight. 3 boys, vs one guy. Anyway after calling them to the beach for a pounding, none of the boys would go in. Our hero decides to paddle back out and deliver a beating at sea, but when he gets close to boy no. 1 he's crying and telling his friends to call the police. The man, being a reasonable person, realizes the absurdity of this situation and drops it. the three boys paddle in, followed closely by a man who doesn't want to have his valve cores removed, the three stare at each other, change quickly, hop in mommy's SUV and speed away.

moral of the story, yes, the "locals" are pussies. I've surfed and shared waves with many of the men that surf up there, and have never had a problem. Entitled rich kids on the other hand... You guys should stick around after letting the air out of folks tires next time, see how that goes for you.

don't come here - there are many other spots on this coastline, and there is no point for all you out of town kooks or rippers to some here. the benefit is al right waves and the risk is having your car towed because the valve stem cores will be gone. don't come here the locals aren't as pussy as you think.
