    there are, they're mostly naturally occurring granular material composed of finely divided rock and mineral particles ranging in diameter from 0.0625 (or 1⁄16 mm, or 62.5 micrometers) to 2 millimeters.

    ...that just happens to be what sand is composed of, and people surf there all the time.

    there's no reefs that I am aware of, but there are shoals about a 1/4 mile or so off the coast. The shoals will break on a solid swell. You need to anchor a boat out there or take a jet ski partner to surf them, and people claim it gets really good, while spots in town are just closing out. Plenty of people have surfed the shoals.

    Really fun to shred on a jet ski on any small little swell too.
