Good advice so far. Where in So Cal are you and what distances are you planning to race?
The Strawberry Fields Tri in Oxnard is a lot of fun (sprint). You can't be afraid of waves though. Check out this thread Newbies - Check this out!!!
and look for post #10 to see pics of the waves. It is held in March.
I also enjoyed the Desert International Tri in Palm Springs in April. If you want to step up to Half IM, there is the Ralph's event down in San Diego...actually lots of sprints and Int'l down that way as well (spring and early summer).
I joined USAT...it pays for itself if you do three or more races per year...plus they keep rankings. I've had good luck with the events that are sanctioned...and some not so good luck with ones that weren't.
Fredo, you're my older brother and I love you...but don't ever take sides, with anyone, against the family again...ever.
