I am going to California for a surf trip in April, but am having trouble narrowing down the best spot. I am an intermediate surfer, and hope to stay close to the surf. Where is the best surf in California in April? I will rent a car, so will be able to drive around a bit, but prefer not to use it if I can. From my research it looks like Huntington beach is good but very busy. Zuma Beach looks good, but with limited places to stay in my price range. It sounnds like Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach are hit and miss at this time of year. Is this correct? Am I missing a better surf spot? I am only flying in for three days so don't to travel far from the airport. Thanks for your help!
