Beginner "surfer" back in the bay area...where should I go?

« on: September 01 2006 15:09:00 »

Hi, I went surfing in Hawaii and now I am addicted. However, I am also timid by CA's ocean. Where should I go surfing if I am just starting up? Looking for a good environment.  Know any good weather service updates for surfing that are free? Lemno...



P.s. e-mail me if you are interested in going surfing. I live in the Peninsula.

I've always goon to Doran Park off the Sonoma coast.  It usually is smaller and breaks close to the beach.  Stinson is nice too some times, but the sharks scare me.

Linda Mar in Pacifica is probably best and closest to you on the Peninsula.  Cowells in Santa Cruz, Princeton Jetty in Half Moon Bay, and Bolina up in Marin are also good protected "beginner" spots
