Not allowed to surf here in the summer (technically) but the place desolate so no one's keeping track. Run down, shabby beachfront; homeless under boardwalk; handful of gay bars across the street if that's your thing.
The run down buildings are the ghosts of a hey-day long forgotten and never to return but make a cool, albeit spooky, backdrop for a crisp fall session. You could have a bowly, right-hander reeling off the jetty all to yourself on almost any decent swell.
Not going to be worth writing home about but different, fun, and worth a look.
