Synopsis

From "Surfer" magazine comes not one but two ultimate guides to the many excellent surf spots along the California coast. Destined for the glove box, these two books cover every seaside county from the Oregon border to Mexico and feature easy to digest maps, black and white photographs of surf breaks, and a text that is as engaging as it is informative. For over 200 spots, these guides deliver a clear assessment of wave quality, prime wave conditions, and local hazards (both natural and manmade). Is the wave best suited for beginners or hellmen? Is west the best, or does southeast give it teeth? What tide? What wind? How are the locals? Are they worse than the sharks? Authoritative yet conversational, tightly designed yet easy to use, these "Surfer's Guides" are the resources for surf novices, experts, and anyone looking to score the perfect wave.

Worth the paper it's printed on 31. Oktober 2006
Von Anomaly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a relatively comprehensive guide to Southern California surf spots. The book includes maps and descriptions of the ideal swell direction for each of the breaks it lists. Unlike other guides, however, it often omits crucial information about how tide levels affect many of the breaks it lists.

Although some will be upset by the editors' inclusion of "secret" spots like Hazard Canyon and the Indicator at Lunada Bay, the rest of us are smart enough to realize that these spots haven't been secret since about the time surfboards were carved out of balsa wood.

One of the best features of this book (and its companion guide to NorCal) is the waterproof paper it's printed on. All in all, this is a fine edition, and a slight but significant improvement over its predecessors.

The photos are pretty 12. September 2007
Von NM in SoCal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If you saw a book on hiking trails or campsites that included the following directions, "Public access exists, but out of respect to the locals, you'll have to do some exploring your own damn self," would you purchase it? Probably not. But in the secretive and hostile world of surfing we don't have much choice. You'll have to put up with sardonic commentary, and contend with poor directions, but this is still the only up-to-date guide to surf spot still in print.

Von Delaware Surfer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book provides a 10,000 foot level summary of southern California surf spots without providing enough information to really be a useful planning tool. The maps especially are worthless. The Stormrider Guide to the same area is far better.

Explaining to the world how to get to everybody's local spots can't be good for surfer cred. 14. September 2008
Von BH - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is not a technical, step-by-step shop manual for California surfing: it is more of a field guide for your own surf exploration. If you want lil' matrices diagramming where and when to surf at any given moment, save up and get yourself a membership to a certain surf website.

All in all, the book is definitely useful when getting outside of your normal haunts. It demystifies the places you have heard about but never surfed, and provides enough practical information to get you there.

There is definitely a casual, caustic tone to the thing, which could possibly grate on some people. At the end of each section there are a few words about neat stuff and local histories or curiosities. At the very least, it's an interesting read for those who surf the California coast or dream of doing so.

Get the nor-cal guide too, even if you don't like Surfer Mag.
What you'd expect from magazine publishers--a good read. 10. November 2013

Local color, lots of major breaks but avoids divulging lesser secret spots, entertainingly written. A good read when out with a cold, or a hotel room heading down the coast.
