i'm having a hard time figuring out playas?

but my dates are may 11th till november. i know the humboldt current cools the water and makes the wind blow. my question is it worth the visit? are the mornings glassy? i'm a mellow 40yr old shortboarder that wants to fish & surf in a safe place. meet some cool locals & learn spanish over my stay. what is the surf like may threw november? size does it get smaller closer to playas the town? is it safe to walk up the points to surf? how cold does the water get in aug & sep? i won't/can't afford a car for my stay.

i just want to rent a room out with a surfing family in playas learn spanish and have a relaxing good time. is that possible?
thanks really for any help you can give.
