Hey hello what's up y'all

So I'm back home in San Berdoo for July and I want to go record shopping before I go back to my quiet island life on Tenerife. Everytime I come home I only go to Amoeba in Howood but last summer their surf vinyl section was surprisingly super chintzy, no bueno!
Back in the 90s Aron's Records was a great place to pick up Dionysus, Norton and Estrus type stuff. I also recall Vinyl Solution in HB having a decent surf section.
Google searches are showing Atomic in Burbank and Freakbeat out in Sherman Oaks but I've never been to either, Any recommendations?

Thanks you much!

Amoebas surf cd section is better than the vinyl.
But if you want vinyl only, I'm not sure.
Maybe Jonpaul can chime in.
