Yup. Same deal down here in Galveston. On weekends, the famous spot with the web cam has a herd of guys arms length apart bobbing on shredder boards. I go to the place 16 blocks away, that's almost exactly the same wave, and 99% of the time, I'm alone. It's also so close to my house, that I can walk if I want to. On weekdays, mid days, I'll go to the famous spot and have that almost to myself.
