It turns out that you can bring your surfboard with you when the train to the sea opens up in May.
The Expo Line extension will open on May 20, allowing Angelenos to catch the train all the way to the beach. The L.A. Times checked in with Metro to answer this important question: Can you bring your surfboard on the train? Metro spokesperson Joe Ubaldo says yes, as long as the train isn't packed and your board can fit through the doors. "But if someone tried to get on the train and push everybody—I don't even want to think about that," Ubaldo said.

Given that I've seen a dance troupe on the Red Line numerous times over the last month, plus the usual bikes and luggage, a surfboard doesn't seem too out of the ordinary.
