Why not surf Typhoon Lagoon?  Waves every 15 minutes with the sound of a horn to prepare you for the next wave.

Hey author, just leave surfing out of it. You have no idea. after 45-48 years in the water, reading this tripe is an insult. What's worse is, that you have shown how little you know. What? Did you pick up a few old Surfer mags and get caught up? ust go away and leave surfing alone.

SOME OF THE WORST ADVISE I EVER READ. KOOK ? WAKE UP AND PUNCH THROUGH THE FOAM BALL.. MAYBE YOUR LEASH IS WRAPED TO TIGHT. ITS A BIG WORLD OUT THERE AND THESE ARE SOME OF THE LEAST REALALISTIC SPOTS, SO LETS ALL GET BACK IN THE LINEUP AND UNDERSTAND ITS NOT ABOUT WHERE ITS ABOUT WHEN. CLOSE OUT SET. JUST GO ANYWAY.ANY WHERE, IT IS WINTER AND WE ALL LOOK LIKE SHARK BAIT IN OUR SEAL SKINS. KEEP AN EYE OUT DOWN THE LINE. ENJOY THE DROP.

Surf wherever you like!  There is NOTHING that says if you're an American  you can't surf the waves in the State that you want!  (sometimes even if you're not American).  If the 'locals' don't like it...that's just too friggin' bad!
