Not sure about south county, but I can't remember ever wearing boots here. I've always thought they were optional, but never even considered until JAN/FEB.
    Fair enough, good on ya dude. I may be out there around Turkey Day to put your theory to the test. Hope you're scoring out there in sunny SD, and hoping you're a Charger fan. Peace....

    You got it. Reefs start south of Ponto.

    one more little tip for the OP and Emass: if you have any friends in the military stationed in SoCal, they could get you access to the base at O'side or another located just south of Oxnard. Not necessarily "secrets", but don't want to "ring the dinner bell" either. Seek and ye shall find.

    I live in North County. The water is 68 degrees currently. Bring a 2mm short arm fullsuit and maybe a 3/2. You'll look like a clown wearing boots and a 4/3....
    68 degree water? That's easily trunk time for me brah. Piss warm compared to what I'm in now in the NE. Which is GREAT to hear.

If The Ranch is out of the question, definitely hit up Jalama State Park. I'd be surprised if it isn't breaking. Reminds me of Blacks somewhat. Too many points to list in Santa Barbara, which is now coming to life (doesn't break during summer). And lastly, blow through SLO. You're better off heading straight to SC, even though you'll have to contend with more crowds.

    You'll notice I didn't mention C-Street, Sandspit, and Trestles because I prefer not surfing in madness. Yes, they can be perfect. So can Swami's. I just don't recommend them. But if you don't mind surfing with 200 other guys, then go for it. If Trestles is going off, then Cotton's or Church is too...without the neoprene speed bumps.

    Also, the North County poster stated that it's 68 degrees right now. Cool! But isn't that kinda rare for mid-October? My bludz down in the Cliffs say the agua is 65-66 right now. I know it's cooler than that as you go further south, if that's your cup o' tea. Let us know if the water stays above 60 in another month. I lived there for 30 years and don't remember ever paddling out in November without booties. Peace and waves....
    That's awesome info, thank you again!!

    Working from South to North: Tourmaline (Pacific Beach/La Jolla) for logging. Blacks for thumping heart-racing speed walls (and leg burn from the walk back up). Cardiff Reef is a blast but crowded. Small take off zone but when you get one, you will remember it. Four cut-backs without even thinking about it... Swami's (south end of Encinitas) and Trestles (further north and before you get to San Clemente - just to chalk 'em off your list.

    Have fun, bro it's a blast...I traveled there (for work) every few weeks year round for nearly two years and rarely got skunked (unless you count marine layers)...3/2 should be fine.

    The only time I surfed K38 was the day Kurt Cobain died. Amazing waves.
