Atmosphere

The locals are nice.
At the pier is the best, but the lifeguards near the pier are a bitch....dont public park, park on the side of the street.

- I have been surfing IOP for several years, and 21st is good but is sometimes crowded. The other side of the pier by Coccanut Joes is good when it gets bigger and 25th street is usually better than 21st. You can also go down to 48th but not sure how kia will react cause that is kinda his spot.

epic it ain't - IOP is my home break and the surf 90% of the time is weak, mushy and waist high or less. It also doesn't matter where you surf here - there's almost no difference from one end of the island to the other. On the plus side, everyone gets along. Bring the longboard or a funshape if it gets a little bigger. Unless you're a 13yr old kid and weigh less than 115lbs leave the thruster at home - you won't need it.

- oh there's surf on IOP, but it ain't kamikaze/pro surf! fun, but not epic.
