You really are good at details and describing stuff. You ever consider being a teacher? LOL
Haha. You have to know something to be a teacher and I don't have the patience for children.

I just stick to giving unwanted advise to passersby.

However, I am working on hosting some training opportunities at work. So there's that.

Someone once told me. "If you cant explain it simply, you don't understand it enough to teach it".

Every time I look at that parking lot along the beach there is very rough surf there. The other side that I use is much more friendly. But do not go if the surf report is showing anything over 3ft. I had a hell of a day once when it was rated 4-6 ft. One guy never made it out.
Thanks for that image and video man that cleared everything up.

I've been fishing since I was a kid in Alabama. I've spent a lot of time on the water in the Gulf, and on party boats out here in Los Angeles. I'm no stranger to a kayak or the surf, but I'm only just now getting into kayak fishing.

My Dad recently gave me his 13' Ocean Kayak Torque after moving away from Santa Barbara to somewhere more landlocked, and I've been looking to get out and do some fishing.

I've launched once out of Leo Carillo (those stairs are a beast to get a big Kayak up and down!) and pulled up a couple of C&R calicos out of the kelp, and had a blast
That said, my understanding is that it's best not to go alone, and none of my fishing friends have a kayak.
My wife also promised me if I keep going out alone, I might come home to find her shiny new Honda Shadow in the driveway and I'd rather she not take up motorcycling

While I try to coerce my friends into buying kayaks, I'm considering the path of least resistance....

I'm curious if any particularly friendly 'yak anglers who launch between Leo Carillo and Oxnard wouldn't mind a rookie tagging along sometime? I'm fully outfitted, mild mannered, punctual, and good with social cues. I'm also freelance, so my schedule tends to be pretty flexible for making it to the beach during the week or on short notice.

Cheers!

PS: I also *might* not be averse to picking up lunch at Neptune's Net or elsewhere locally convenient for anyone nice enough to have me

Curious to see if you guys ever got out there together?

Iím a bit further south (Long Beach area), but not afraid to make a drive every now and then. Weekends are my current availability until next spring. Iím not familiar with the area, so I wouldnít be much help other than helping to carry and being another able body on the water.
