Not to hijack this thread, but I'm going to anyway. I'm headed to Seattle in August to meet up with a friend and head for the mountains, but was considering surfing while I'm out there. He said that locals can be a bit territorial out that way, though he doesn't surf...just picked it up through hearsay. Any surfers out there care to lay out what it's like out there culture-wise?
I'm an intermediate surfer and am of course respectful in any line up, particularly if I'm the stranger in the bunch.

Westport is your best bet from Olympia, or for Washington State given your general experience level. It really isn't very territorial at the Westport Jetty stretch as long as you are not jockeying for the primo peak on any given day. There are other breaks in and around the Jetty beach but not likely to be breaking in July & August... those breaks would be more territorial.
The other territorial breaks are not anywhere near Westport and I won't mention them here... or my legs might end up broken the next time I venture out that way. Snoop around and you might figure out where they are. But again, 'tis not the season yet for the Aleutians to start spewing.
Best call ahead about boards and any wetsuit gear you might want to rent.
