If your good at surfing, this place is great. There are loads of little kids who can't surfing at all, they try to catch waves but most don't even drop in. Those who do eat it immediately. You can show off and they'll think ur great!
Redondo is a very kiddie spot. That's the way I think of it. The beach is not that great, it's the same as Torrance, except a better break. It's usually bigger.
If Manhattan is real disorganized come here it is usually nice and glassy and hollow, when everywhere else is choppy crusher waves. Other than that, never go to Redondo, if Manhattan and Hermosa aren't choppy, there is no reason to go to Redondo. Both are better breaks, Redondo, next to Torrance is the worst break in the South Bay. Either go south over to the PV breaks, or go north to Hermosa and Manhattan if their good, both directions offer better waves.

Ave A Locs...M1SK...PV Kooks split... - Redondo is the best beach in the South Bay. Hermosa sucks since they built the boardwalk and got rid of Dianas. Manhattan/El Porto is full of brillo spazzs, weekend warriors, and no parking. Grew up going to Avenue A and C everyday as a kid. Would drive to Huntington, Newport Jettys, The Wedge, Anderson St, Trestles, or Salt Creek in high school and beyond and wished I had just stayed home. Its a little localized in Redondo but no worse than Huntington or Seal Beach. Just don't go to Breakwall or Topaz, unless you want to get stared at by Beryl Street or Zapot jerks. Most of them don't even surf in Redondo anymore, since they turned into tweekers. Blue Pacific use to be a cool RB surf shop with a reggae influence. They made rasta colored boards and had the irie vibe until they turned into chronics. Its a bummer, I was excited to see the new BP shirts on the guy's kids at El Burrito Jr, eventhough the owners are diks. Go Surf RB in the winter early morning to miss the onshore winds and get some of the best waves that Redondo has to offer. Blown out storm days are the best at Sapphire which is actually the Northside of the Topaz Jetty. Huge, uncatchable garagedoor slammers roll in on the Topaz side and keep rolling into perfect Hawaii like bowls on the Sapphire side. Horseshoe Pier gets bowly too but I think its illegal to surf there since the fire in the 80's. Go to the Avenues in Redondo and enjoy a nice day at the beach and be sure to get a Special C at LBJ's before you leave.
