Outside....conditions permitting....as one big wave surfer (Foo or Little??) who once said something like this...”Five 10ft waves are better than one hundred 5ft waves”. Always try to pick off the bigger sets but then end up slalom skiing through the inside and sure to have a few waves ruinEd by the “inside” guys...
theres a spot i used to surf alone all the time, but when someone would come out, i'd sit inside if they were out, or outside if they were in
of course nowadays the shittty spot has guys in every possible position all hours of the day making it not worth surfing
