Practice spots in Los Angeles for beginner

Hi, any efoilers in the Los Angeles area have any tips on where to practice for those first few sessions? I’m near Marina del Rey, so over by the sea wall seems like my best bet. Though it might burn a fair amount of battery getting in and out of the channel. Thanks!

I have been testing mine more south in Newport Beach (but I ended with the faulty flipsky vesc for now). I found a decent test spot. I will have to move to Redondo or Palos Verdes in the coming months so if you find a good spot let me know! Thanks. Aurelien
