    Give Respect to the Locals. understand the pecking order out there, though it may not be pipeline, Socal locals don't like tourists dropping in on them,

    Cali vs. EC............um yeah there's a biiiiiig difference. i would do some research about the breaks before you go, so you don't end up going somewhere and getting your butt handed to you by a heavy nugget.

    exactly.

    And yes, it breaks very different. Even beach breaks that you would think line up the same as the EC do not. Most beach breaks in socal break out in much deeper water. Its not inside bowls etc... As the surf gets bigger, most surf stretches pretty far out to sea compared to what you are used to. Unless its really small, then it will get closer to a shorebreak. Surfline Travel is a great starting point.
