Drop by Port A Surf Co. Chris can get you hooked up as far what suit, booties , gloves you will need.
Basically we have several good breaks around Port A. Horace Caldwell is a good spot to start. There is a rip right next to the pier so you can utilize it to paddle out. There is a fairly mellow right and a left, to help you get your surf legs back in business. There should be a crew out and most all are cool and the vibe is good.
To the south is a break called fish pass, two small jetties which have enhanced the bars and it can be good. Vibe is good. A little more punch than HCP. The next break south is Packery Channel. Two medium length jetties, again a litlte more punch, it can line up nicely and there is also a rip right next to the jetties that can assist with you paddle. Vibe is good
The next break south is Bob Hall Pier, not exactly a good place for beginner or intermediate surfers. The crew is pretty agressive and the vibe a little tight. It is a great break, perhaps a good place to get some photos and see whats going on before making the paddle.
Have a great trip..
