Lido beach has two rock jetties most people surf to the left of the left rock jetty (when your facing the beach) You can surf really anywhere along the beach though. farther north by the pass it breaks ffar out. JETTIES HAVE BEEN REMOVED AND FILLED IN WITH SAND FOR BEACH RENOURISHMENT!
Its chill. There are plenty of homeless people that will hit on your lady friends.
March 2009 sand renourishment has ruined the break. The jetties are completely covered...
I like Lido....
