good spring groundswell - we went down to surfside because some groundswell was forecasted because of a tropical storm in the caribbean.  I thought surfside would catch this swell better because of the angle it was coming. Man was i right, we got there and there were som

The Light Beer of beach breaks - I lived in Surfside for about a year and I can say that it's a good beginner's spot. The sandbars change every hurricane season, so some years are better than others. They locals are mellow, except for a few retards (Bingo) who are looked down on by even the other locals. Some gang-bangers hang out at the jetty park, but there's not much reason to go there anyway. The cops are douchebags, as has been mentioned before.

Just before a hurricane everyone jumps into the channel, where you'll see overhead+ walls that almost break. After hurricanes you can get a day or two of clean surf. Otherwise, from August to April you get pretty consistent waist-chest mush.

I can't imagine using a shortboard here. You can get some steeper peaks further east at the pier.

Every decade or two a hurricane eats the street closest to the beach and the lineup retreats another block. It's kinda weird seeing houses out in the water.
