Yes, Seal Beach is named after seals, but they are not around too much anymore.
Yes, Seal Beach is generally great for kitesurfing and windsurfing, because often it is quite breezy.
And yes the properties are extremely expensive. Living on an oceanfront lot in California that is not a postage stamp is a quite a treat and a rarity.
We were treated to stay with our good friends Wendi and Jeremy at their jaw-dropping Seal Beach home.
However the highlight was having dinner at her amazing restaurant, Original Fish Company in Los Alimitos.
You must go there if you are near north Orange County along the coast. The food is great; the vibe is great; and the prices are very reasonable.
