You want uncrowded surf? You want pristine beaches? You want lots of sea life? You want picturesque coastal drives? You want Big Sur.

^We used to call it 'Ray Bay' because the warm water would attract stingrays.

Seal Beach pier again. Had to post this one.

It's smaller than HB pier. And it still has the old school wooden rails and pilings.

Santa Barbara Harbor is home to the infamous Sandspit surf spot. Ocean swells slam into the breakwall and then peel into the harbor entrance. It's a perfect, hollow right-hand drainer.......dude! 8)

Newport Beach north of the pier and south of the Santa Ana River mouth from 36th street to 56th street there are a series of rock groins that produce some powerful well shaped left tubes during a south swell.
