They have a nice lil shore break there at Del Mar. Brings back memories of my youth, specifically my junior/senior years in high school when I hung out at Manhattan/Hermosa/Redondo Beach(es)... only 15 minutes or so from my home in Torrance.
I love the break here but I have to admit it used to knock me on my ass when I did it after dark. The sneaker waves came out of nowhere and my keys and smokes were just gone along with my lighter. The surfers liked the beaches north and south a bit from here since Del Mar caters to families with kids and dogs.
