Well, my opinion of bird rock is this: I dont surf it. Its actually a really good laydown boogie spot. Joel Tudor and a few others go there on long boards and stuff, but that is generally a break that everyone avoids, with good reason. Its not even the locals, its just a dangerous wave. Its not ideal for shortboarding while 10 spots on each side of it are, so your right about bird rock...
But as far as surf gangs and stuff, those are little LS high school kids running around waxing peoples windsheilds...
The only real thing that happened around here was last year when that pro surfer from La Jolla got jumped. But that was after an altercation in a bar, and the guy didnt mean to kill him. He hit him too hard and killed him with a punch. But my point is, the fact that he got killed had nothing to do with him being a surfer...
Dont get me wrong, like I said, I surf with di**s every day out here. But its mostly a lot of angry barking. I surf with this guy that literally yells at everyone that doesnt live in ob. EVERY DAY. If he drops in on you, he yells at them. If he is paddling out in the impact zone while you are on the wave, he *****es at you for coming at him... Hes a total kook, and brings bad vibes, but thats mostly what it is... Just angry old dudes yelling at outta towners and little kids telling the boogie boarders to stay in there zone...
Im just saying. Ive seen full on collisions, broken boards, terrible crashes... But none of them resulted in a beat down on the beach. Its always just 30 minutes of splashing and sh** talking betweens sets.
I know everywhere can have di*ks, you are right about that. My experience in OC though is just that its a much more volotile environment in the summer. Its a mix of all kinds of people in the water... People out for their first time... Its just dangerous sometimes... And sometimes the people who dont know how to surf can be the most dangerous ones. They will be out there fighting, because they have no respect for the ocean or the city they are visiting... Its like all the fu**in Zonis (tourists from arizona) that come out here and throw cigarette buts on our sidewalks, and attempt to paddle out on foam boards and get in the way... We have it here too... But most of the crazies that visit san diego stay on the beach drunk. Not too many people venture out in the water here that dont know how to surf at all... They gotta go up to tourmoline or somewhere they can paddle out in.

I never said I was a la jolla local. I began my statement by saying i dont surf there. I will go to blacks on occasion like everyone else, but other than that, I dine in la jolla more than i surf.
I live on sunset cliffs. I am an obecian. I don't spend much time north of the san diego river. I got everything I need within a 3 mile stretch.

Keep dreaming fool...
if you were any good you would not have even mentioned any of this.
Sounds like you got scared in OC, so maybe it would be best for you to just stay away?
For you to even attempt to call out Jersey or OC ,.....in relationship to VA Beach, does not even make sense, and given the fact that you claim "I am sure I have been surfing longer than you have", you should already know this. And you should also know your home break well enough to know that OC is way more consistent then VA beach by a long shot. If you were or are any good and you are from the VA beach area, don't you just end up in OBX anyway? I mean really, who stays in VA beach when OBX is so close?
You original post was random from start to finish,... just a rant about how you got ***** slapped in OC, and so now you got beef with everyone north of VA Beach........now,.. who is the KOOK?
If you are so much more experienced, it sure does not show it from anything you have written so far.
I call BS on you, your claims and your post.
