I'm planning a surf trip to La Jolla around Christmas, and was planning on spending my time at Scripps/Blacks. I'm noticing on the weather forecasts though that around three of the days I'll be saying there will have either rain, or be right after a rain event. I understand there are some water quality issues after rain in So Cal, but I was wondering, if there's been enough rain, does that matter anymore? Does the first good rain event basically "flush" the system? Or is it still advisable to not surf during or after it rains due to high bacteria levels, etc.? Just curious, as here on the East Coast we don't really worry about that stuff since it tends to rain pretty consistently throughout the year. I'd hate to travel all the way to SD and not get a chance to surf because of water quality issues.
