So i'm heading to SoCal, not for a surf trip but for another agenda, however i will have half a day to SURF?

Any ideas on where to rent a board and surf nearby? I'm considering South LA county and Orange County. I know about Jacks.

I'll be with the wife, (she's not surfing). I'm considering Salt Creek (cuz my dad loved the spot back in the 60's).

Also, is anyone out there surfing with just a 2 mil or will i freeze.

Any info general or specific would be appreciated.
