Ha California... Three major Areas:

Northern California: from Del Norte to Marin Counties. Wild and Cold, hard weather, white sharks, big unsurfable groundswells. The land of the hardcore surfers.

Central California: Still hard weather, beautiful coastline, far more options to surf. It's the perfect land for searchers. Prepare your quiver from the beachbreak shortboard to the Maverick gun. Central California is wild, Central California is beautiful, Central California is surfable...

South California: The modern surf area. Always somewhere to surf. Frequency but lack of consistency. Good weather, fun waves, crowds: the place where you need to be !

Fun - Well too small to shortboard, so I grabbed an old foamboard out of my garage and used that.  Really fun, vibe is great. Everyone is having a good time, no wave fighting, just good vibes.  Went surfing until 8 at night, best waves were at ni

Nice day for and Incoming.. - Got there for the incoming tide (a few hours before high tide). I think I've discovered that I like it better than high or outgoing tide.  More waves in many spots and less crowding in the popular spots.&nb

any day with swell - People, please start making an effort to get out of the way when people are up and riding waves.  This starts before the wave is 10 or 20 feet from you.  You should be able to tell long before the wave gets to you whether you should

smal and clean - First time out at Topanga, tiny waves, but some fun on the sets, mix of longboarders and others, the quad fish proved easy for catching waves, even for an unfit old guy like me...  Highlights were the dolphins swimming past (as I was getting s

June 16th had morning sickness bad (almost skipped it), but the wind just disappeared and it glassed off.  Turns out waves were waist to head and the tide was high enough to connect all the way to the inside. Summer crowd was there, but I was pa

Good surf shop in the Santa Cruz area - I'm looking for a good surf shop in the Santa Cruz area to buy a Surftech board, any advice? Thanks!

By jaxon , 11-07-2011

depends - on where you go. L.A. area only gets trunkable in Aug. Anywhere north of that is gonna be some sort of wetsuit year round. Anything north of Santa Barbara is most likely 4/3 full suit year round.

By irishsurfer102 , 10-07-2009

wetsuit or boardies?? - ill be travelling to california soon and was wondering if the water was warm enough to wear boardies
