beginner spots in SoCal? - 2007/03/20 06:17 I am just now getting into surfing and I was curious as to know what are some of the good beginner spots here in southern california? I recently purchased an 8 ft board and have been dying to try it out. So, any advice would be great! thank you so much. I am located in the Orange County/San Diego area.

Re:beginner spots in SoCal? - 2007/03/20 12:40 Well I surf down in San Diego. Some good spots to check out down here would be Mission Beach, several surf schools around here, The most northern part of Carlsbad state beach, Tamarack, Warm waters (a little south of tamarack in front of the power plant). Thats off the top of my head. Once you get a little skill you can check out Grand View, E-Gores, Old Mans, Churches. Either way just have fun. Also, make sure you have a long enough leash on your board. It kills when they come back and hit you in the head.

Re:beginner spots in SoCal? - 2007/03/20 14:34 Amanda, try Tourmaline down in PB. A lot of longboarders, but generally a nice flowing wave. There's also Old Man's in San Onofre. Mellow vibe. And yes, Tamarack as CHarvey suggested is a good spot as well. Just remember to always use your common sense when you're out there in the lineup. Have fun.
