    This should say how to get killed trying to surf waves you can't handle.

    Fortunately, no.

    Depends when you go, it's like any other beach break when it's firing

    exactly. nobody is coming to ak to surf in the winter. if it's a stellar day and you're here, you'll paddle out but traveling all this way to surf slushy waves with ice floes in heavy freezing spray? it's mountain time up here now, not ocean time.

    The Sandy pics looked like fun though. Have to check it out one of these days, I hear the eye candy is where it's at.
    Well yeah, I'm sure Puerto and Lowers would rank ahead of Cocoa, not arguing that, but as far as E. Coast goes, it's as good as anywhere else when the conditions are right. I bounce back and forth between New Smyrna / Ponce Inlet and Cocoa, i'll be staying off NSB this weekend, looks like chest to shoulder+ with light offshores all weekend, ideal if you ask me...

    I always assumed Lowers was a point, learn something new everyday I guess.

    All of trestles is a cobblestone reef break... You could call it a beach break, but to me its a classic california rock reef. The cobblestones make it what it is and the river-mouth that lets the sand collect on them. The cobblestones are not sharp at all, but I will be damned if I dont slip and almost break an ankle on those damn things everything i walk back in from a session there.

    But its not a point break either... Many refer to the San Clemente area as point, but its not a true point at all...

    Ohh, my 2 cents of the day with regards to trestles that ALWAYS bugs me, is that the break itself is in SAN DIEGO county, not San Clemente like everyone from Surfer Magazine to Surfline refers to it as being in OC... When you park by lowers and take the trail down, you can look directly north and see the Exact "WELCOME TO OC" sign which is a couple hundred yards north and heading south from OC you will see "WELCOME TO SAN DIEGO COUNTY" almost half a mile north of where the surf break actual is located. its the exact county line.... Lower Trestles is in fact in San Diego County... Albeit far from Oceanside or any SD town, it is NOT in Orange County... =)
