    Monterey

    The Monterey Bay turns on and gets every bit as big and gnarly and epic as Hawaii. It takes some effort, and the locals aren't much help (I found many of them to be jerks), but it's not too hard to...

    I'm with you man. In 10 years of surfing the east coast, I encountered exactly ONE rude individual in the water (as compared to 1000 on the internet!).

    No one...okay just kidding. I lived in Chix Beach in my VB days. If I only had a tiny bit of daylight, I'd hit North End VB. In my opinion, no one spot along the VA coast ever struck me as "much...

    And by 'respectful' you mean, 'allow a bunch of d-bags to crap all over you'? Not to be a ****, but c'mon man, just go surf. Don't hog all the waves and don't drop in. That's it.

    Esterillos on a big swell sounds fun. I only surfed the place when the tide was wrong elsewhere. There's another low tide spot that I won't name because I don't recall seeing anyone else mention it. ...

    I think the mental aspects are far more important than the equipment. Sure, it's important to have good gear, but none of that matters if you cannot focus and get the job done.

    Coastal developments are the cause of beach erosion AND the case for "replenishment".
