i recommend blacks beach in north san diego or sunset cliffs just south of there, my fav place in socal since it catches swell really well. manhattan beach is cool tho too and its right next to LAX

I was just in SD for a week and basically caught OC Harbor and Trestles at waist/chest all day. I totally recommend OC Harbor. When Blacks and Cardiff were not really breaking OC Harbor was catching the swell. A really cool under-the-radar spot with a couple of peaks.
Trestles and SO beach are totally worth it. Since Trestles seems to be firing every day there is a bit of a crowd but there are enough waves for everyone since the walk down filters out the serious from the not-so-serious surfers. I did a dawn patrol and there were prob still 50 guys out at 6:30AM at uppers. Weekends are worse, weekdays are better. In total I surfed Trestles for 6 hours over two days. Caught too many waves to count....
Just surfing that wave at Trestles is worth it. It's the real deal.
