Also, if you're surfing Pools, watch where people go in and out as well. Easy break to access but getting in and out can be less than desirable. If no swell, definitely get some snorkeling gear at the Marina ($20) and head over to Steps. Swim towards Tres, the reef there is pretty amazing for being that close to shore. Scary to see whats under you. Enjoy it.
I would highly recommend snorkeling before paddling out. That way you are comfortable in the water and on the reef and you wont ahve to worry about what's under you at all. You'll already know! then make sure you are capable of doing shallow dives, swimming on the surface etc. The last thing you want is to jump on an urchin!
better to belly flop then take some coral to the dome...
