This is the South Bay. This stretch of beach is known for its million dollar homes, beautiful people, beach volleyball and surfing.
The South Bay consists of fickle surf spots. A slight change in the swell or wind direction can bring perfection or chaos. On any given big swell, one beach may be unruly and closed out while a break less than a mile away can produce a surfer’s dream.
As surfers, we are attracted to these waves during this time of year, and this winter was special, an El Nino Winter. I spent November through March… Chasing El Nino.
