With closeouts, I would much rather be on my paipo than my mat. For me, the mat excels with long walls, but not closeouts :o

Looks like fun Mike. Coronado Ca.....near San Diego.....correct? 58 degrees is cold water huh. Up here on the Central Coast we laugh at 58 degrees. You SoCal boys can't handle cold water. Pussies. As for my buddies in Oregon who wear 5+ mm in the Summer they must be rolling over in the barrel.....assuming they can ever find a barrel up there in that mush. :lol:

As you can see Ron the Central Coast Tourism Council even includes you Ventura folk in the Central Coast area. Frankly I think they have overstepped their bounds a bit. In my book anyone South of Santa Barbara County is not worthy of the designation. 8-)

I thought Santa Cruz to the SF Bridge were Central Coast.

Love the "mushy" waves of N. Oregon :)

When I was living North of SF (Sonoma coast) we had occasional periods in the upper 40's. I would get an ice cream headache just getting my feet in the water!

Well technically Jalama and Tarantula's are Central Coast since they are north of Point Conception but I'd put the southernmost break on the Central Coast at Surf beach on Vandenberg AFB. It certainly is sharky enough. A surfer was eaten there last year. Great Whites like that cold North Pacific water.

58 degrees is 4/3 water.
Santa Barbara is in Southern California.
Oregon may be bumpy but it's not mush:

Grumpy grumps:

"Check out Surfline."

Like I'm supposed to take Surfline all serious and SheeeeIIIIItttttt? F*ck Surfline. If you've actually been in the water anywhere north pf Point Conception then you would know that the ocean conditions are totally different. You could even say that the PNW starts at Pt. Conception. The foliage subtly changes from Monterey pines, to Redwoods, to Douglas fir and Spruce the farther north you go.

That Florida map is all wet. There was a fatality in Malibu in 1989, someone else was eaten at Pigeon Pt. in San Mateo County in 1984. And there has definitely been a fatality in Sonoma County of a boogie boarder.

Plus, I said Great Whites like cold water. The guy who was killed at la Jolla Cove was taken by a Hammerhead.

From 1900 to the present there have been 163 authenticated unprovoked shark attacks reported from the Pacific Coast of North America. The breakdown by state is; Washington 1, Oregon 20, and California 142. There have been 11 fatal shark attacks reported from California over the past 60 years. The White Shark, Carcharodon carcharias, was either positively identified or highly suspect in all 12 fatalities. The White Shark was implicated in 120 (85%) of the 142 attacks reported from California.

* As noted in “Shark Attacks of the Twentieth Century” the forensic evidence and circumstances surrounding the death of Michelle Von Emster, April 15, 1994 do not support the conclusion that a shark, more specifically a White Shark, was responsible.

I took these pictures on a fishing trip to Guadalupe Island a couple years ago.

I'm glad to see you corrected some of your bogus Florida claims after being appropriately schooled. I'll continue to monitor your posts as a public service to the members of this forum. BTW, the confirmation of a Hammerhead in the La Jolla death was by an eyewitness.
