General

It is a fun med. to small left hander and it has some hollow sections. Its really good for off the lips because it is not to fast and it is not to slow.

- 36th is a fun break, it can get good on WNW swells as well. I'd say Blackies is normally better in the winter though.

its the truth! - i surf newport almost every week, if i'm not, i'm surfing someplace else, but newport is not that great, the entire beach doesnt get good very often, the only reason i surf there is cuz its the easiest beach to get to from my house, i would try huntington if i was a tourist, the waves are almost always slightly bigger. the crowds aret much different, but newport is still a fun place to surf!
