Re: “Where To Surf

Editor: Are you serious? You seem to be addressing your information to prospective surfers and encouraging them to surf in the wintertime? You should be questioning your own logic. Beginners should wait for the summertime to surf when the ocean is less hazardous. Are you frustrated because the seasoned surfers in Humboldt won't give abundant information about the surf spots. You're an editor! What's your purpose for editing? You're right, the information that you can't seem to squeeze out of seasoned surfers is "out there", it's conveniently located just outside your cubicle and toward the west: teh shape of the coastline, the level of the ocean, the angle of the swell, etc. The Humboldt County surf doesn't always have a " scene" , it can sometimes be illusive as some locals choose to be. Our apprehensive responses are not to discourage, but to encourage new capable surfers to seek and understand relative information on their own. To invent their own surf adventure, while respectfully, recognizing that most locals are soulfully building their own. lastly, to be fair, you should let your readers and advertisers in on these other interesting spots to surf; times-standard.com, thejackonline.com,humboldt.craigslist.org, and humguide.com
