Redondo Breakwall crowded even way back in '61.
Well that long weekend kinda sucked. Sure there were good waves but the kooky crowds were everywhere. You'd get a spot to yourself for a 1/2 hour only to see groups of 4 running down to your break. Forgot my wetsuit one day after a pretty long drive to a certain spot. That sucked. Basically a lot of driving for lumpy waves and frumpy crowds.
Highlight was one day I was at a jetty and some tool in a green wetsuit come walking out on the jetty to jump in. The waves weren't that big to not paddle out in dude. The best part is this jetty doesn't really have a jump in rock at the end, just barnacles and this kook was trying to figure out how to jump in for a 1/2 hour. Ha! Then he preceeded to paddle violently for every fucking wave that came in. Joke was on us.
