Surfer Magazine's Guide to Southern California Surf Spots

Surfer Magazine's Guide to Southern California Surf Spots

I don't actually have time to surf anymore... and when I do have time I sorta alreay know where I want to go based on what's happening in the water and how many people I feel like punching in the face (because that's how we roll in L.A.) but I bought this book because it made me laugh when I was flipping through it in the bookstore: They called out a certain Ho'wood producer as being a kook and made other apt-and-vaguely-cruel cracks. Worth getting if you know your spots and if you don't... and a decent option if you're looking to upgrade from Bank Wright's guide (even thought he wins in the "author whose name most qualifies him to write a surfing guide" category).
