I surfed folly/washout for 3 years straight and it was actually pretty good...the consistency was relatively spread out (not nearly as bad as the gulf, where I used to live), but the shape was good to perfect plenty of days. Tons of perfect barrels if you surf every swell, all year...not huge barrels, but just right to get done what you need to do to feel like a good surfer. Folly locals are very good surfers...as good as any I've seen anywhere in world.

Sometimes I wish for the shape folly gets. Shape is everything, imo.
You can definitely take your board on the train. U stowe it on the racks above the seating. Ive done it multippe times with no problems.
You're born, you die, and in between you make a lot of mistakes.
