Here's hoping a shark doesn't eat me, lol.
I'll be surfing a few blocks from my new home, in Pacifica CA. The beach is Linda Mar beach, otherwise known as Pacifica State Beach. From my abbreviated research, I've discovered that it's supposed to be one of the better areas to surf, in the region. Multiple breaks that cater to all classes of surfers, a "friendly" surfing beach, etc.
Some nice pics and vids of the area:
