How do the waves in Hermosa compared to santa monica?
I see you live in SM. I can't tell by your post if you are asking about gental waves for beginner surfers or waves for the more experienced. Hermosa Was dubbed Surf City before Huntington legally acquired the title. The famous Hawaiian surfer, Duke K, surfed in Hermosa.
The Manhattan Beach , El Porto section around 45th street, has waves 1-3 ft and is a great place to learn to surf. By both the Hermosa and Manhattan Piers, and other streets, the locals are out riding bigger waves. My son has been surfing Marine Street for years, likes the vibe, no territorial issues some beaches have.
