Washington Navel in Santa Monica Canyon?

I live three blocks from the beach in Santa Monica Canyon and am considering a Washington Navel. I have heard that it may not be a good coastal choice, Im zone 10b so it SHOULD be ok, no? A Trovita was suggested, but its a bit tall for my yard space at 25 feet.

Trovita on US897, on Flying dragon, poncirus trifoliata, on C35 will not grow to 25 feet but 10 to 15 depending on rootstock choice.
