Getting pitched over LA's finest sand bars!! Oh yeah lets not forget the sharks!

The South Bay of LA has plenty of good surf. Sand bars are back and its out for the sharks.

Surf at El Porto Reviews

Great surfing but can get busy. Parking lot gets pretty full on the weekends or when the waves are great. Just take note, that you’ll be surfing with the men in little gray suits. Most of them are juveniles and like the warm water. General rule of thumb is they’ll pretty much leave you alone, if you leave them alone.🦈

Can get very crowded and is sharky

Home of the closeouts. It's north of Manhattan Beach and is a very popular spot for LA residents
