after the recent downpours, the water is suspect again and looks pretty dirty from the kelp beds to the beach. i was up in redondo this past weekend though and the water seemed to be pretty clean and the waves were the best i've seen them there. it definitely rained hard at times during the weekend in LA as well.
i'm trying to figure out where exactly where the source of all the major runoff is. i know there's pipes that drain into the sea everywhere but certainly some places are filthier than others. i know the tijuana river dumps its crap in IB and the san diego river empties out in OB... and as i was driving down to SD this morning the water was still pretty sketch around oceanside and camp pendleton.
where are the cleanest places to surf after rain between SD and LA?
