    There are at least three spots on the Delmarva that fit that description...more aggravating on a good day than my experiences at Trestles have been and like you said....a set waves at Trestles would be the wave of the year at any of those spots.

    actually most of the videos I see from blacks, swamis, Malibu, Rincon etc.. I see idiots dropping in on each other constantly. No thanks. Considering how good they have it, I am not impressed collectively with west coast surfers at all.

    A little hate from a wave starved east coast "surfer."

    No truth to that. Its not easy to get a wave at swamis, windansea, lowers, blacks. Not much in life that is as rewarding as getting a few set waves at Swamis or Trestles is "easy"

    They can surf well...nothing you wouldn't see at a standout east coast spot, but lots of talent in the water, and talented surfers don't tend to screw up a lineup as much as a bunch of egotistical learners that have something to prove on every wave. That's my take and I have no idea about Rincon or Malibu...but I suspect its quite a bit worse at those spots.

    This vid brought back some painful memories. Such a great wave, only to be swarmed with so many fuggin kooks.

    Relatively easy takeoffs with a long perfect shoulder, followed by a great bowl section on the inside...with anywhere from 50-150 guys in the water. Driving up from San Dieguito and getting your first glimpse, this spot resembles fleas on a dog.

    The hilarious part? There's a left on the other side that's almost just as good, and is rarely ridden. But that was 20 years ago...Boneyards is probably all choked out now too.

    But...if you ever got a set wave all to yourself...you could live off that for a month.

    Well the guy that told me this is a good friend of mine and lived on the central coast for years and he's one of the best surfers I've known, so I doubt he had any trouble getting his share. I'm sure me and him have very different definitions of what "talent" is, though. But he also told me the overall competence level of surfing is better in FL (which is different than my original question). I don't know so I thought I'd ask.

    This is probably a very true statement.

    I'm used to surfing in very crowded and very competitive lineups here in Ocean City. I would say it was easier getting waves there than back home. If your frame of reference were most other East Coast lineups your experience might differ. The talent level was pretty similar to what I'm used to as well. The only sessions I had that were frustrating were in Oceanside where the locals had the shifty peaks very wired.
