Yes go there... - You're absolutly right much better up at delray, palm beach and deerfield no need to ever come down to Miami again. We never get good waves there is no such thing as a Noth swell, there are no fine ladies/models, the water is ugly and there is nothing to do at night.

go to deerfield - surfed south beach and had the worst experience ever. surfed it on a good day(north swell and offshores) and the wave quality did not impress me. If its not a kook that drops in on you it sure will be the agressive locals cursing you out. It is so crowded I almost got my new JS dinged by a C surfboard in the lineup! totally NOT WORTH IT. I found deerfield, boca, delray and palm beach much more enticing

sure... - Hey Rich, the "local" sceen at South has fizzled out big time over the last 10 years or so. So getting the shit kicked out of you for "not surfing good" is hard to belive. Do you understand the concept of dropping in on someone or cutting them off. I would guess you don't and that's prob what happened. It's kind of like crossing the street look both ways before you go. Nobody is just going to walk up and say hey ur a kook and kick your ass. Just about everybody here is a clueless barney and they don't get beatup because for the most part they stay out of the way.(if ur vocal) Next time ur in town stay by 5th St
