 Additional Information

Alona has a very steep beach, so even though there may be consistant swell, it's often times not big enough to break outside. Look for a good, pumping West wind, which isn't too hard to find in the late Summer through the Fall.
Gas stations are few and far between. FYI.

Atmosphere

Getting outside can be a real pain here, but it's worth it.
And forget about a clean-up. Prevailing winds are westerly, and for a west wind to go east is almost unheard of.

yeah - yeah im pretty shure it is good to have a thicker board. I surf in galveston, i know texas sucks but its all i have :( . But there is a differince from bouyancy from galveston and california. galveston does accualy have a fair amount of fresh watter in it you can tell a slight differance in bouyancy. and yeah my spelling blows

No difference - There's really no perceivable difference in buoyancy. I guess technically there is, but the only people who make a point of it are those who can't surf (well).The reason you'd think there's a difference (and may want a thicker board) is the same as any cold water surf spot; you're wearing about 30 lbs of wetsuit.

Interesting - Must be interesting surfing in fresh water. Do you need a more buoyant board?
