Hi all
Im a surfer from Israel and around mid Sep I will be coming to LA to meet up with a dear friend! I have several issues on my mind.
1-Due to the high costs of bringing a board from here, how much does a new  board cost? Im talking about a nice 6' or 6'1 AL merick or LOST. Dont wanna get ripped off...
2-I read that the water temp should be warm at that time..but what exactly are we talking about? whats the water temp?
3-I would like to try Trestles. How is it (power, length, localism)?
4-Apart Trestles and Huntington, any other worthy spots? I will be staying at my friends, Oragne county, so any spot near the area where he leaves will be cool
THANK YOU all...see, from what I know LA has so much to offer, I dont know where to begin...

1. check Ebay for Al merrick boards
2. that will vary - you can always rent a wetsuit or buy one when you get here
3. Trestles is the best - you gotta try it.  Also try Cotton's near Trestles.
4.Other places - depends where your friend lives and how gud you are:
Killer Capo or Poche
T street in San Clemente

We don't need Jizboy and Halloween 4 cast anaewhere near Trestles. I think I'd rather have the Marines close the place and real surfers can sneak thru the creek or invent some creative way to get to the perfect cobblestones A-frames! And no Tom or MEEB 669!

Sneaking into Trestles, just like the old days.  Back then if you were caught, your board might sport a few bullet holes and you would have to pay a nice fine.  Ahh, good times!!
