San Diego is home to many pro surfers and its many amazing beaches draw surfers from all over the world.
Many of them decide to stay to live close to some of the best surf spots in California. You can, too. Pack up your stuff, tie your board to the roof of your sedan, quit your job and head to the beach!
Bring sun screen. You’re gonna need it.
Or, do it the responsible way and request a transfer and find a place to live first. (Our Team Big Block Realty can help you with that last part.)
San Diego’s Best Surf Spots
This blue working-class neighborhood offers great variety. The water around the pier has a little bit of everything for surfers of every skill level. There’s a dedicated local surfing scene, but they’re a welcoming bunch. Go to Tower 8 and say hello!
2.) Wind and Sea
Windansea bears mentioning because it’s probably San Diego’s most consistent, most “surf-able” break. Of course, it’s also one of the most crowded and localized.
Swamis in Encinitas is known internationally throughout the surfing community for its right point break. Waves are always a little bigger which means a large crowd. Swami’s is home to a protected reef that generates serious waves.
4.) Black’s Beach
Perhaps So-Cal’s most pristine beach with clear, blue water and consistent and perfect waves, Black’s is maybe one of the world’s best places to surf. It’s also a great place to spot a dolphin.
is a short beach with reefs at either end. Tabletops to the south and Cardiff Reef to the north are both fun shouldery waves. In these waves, pros like Rob Machado and Taylor Knox honed their trade.
6.) Sunset Cliffs
Is a somewhat hidden gem in Point Loma that is never really frequented by tourists. When paddling in and out be sure to avoid the rocks. Although it can often be crowded, there are usually fun waves to be found.
Although some consider this an orange county break because it’s on the northern most tip of Camp Pendelton it still deserves mention. Trestles is such a good wave and so consistent that it plays host to several international surfing competitions. The Upper and Lower sections are about one mile apart and are pick up almost all swells. Be prepared to walk a good distance and fight for your wave from as many as 6o+ surfers. This is well worth it because on a good day Trestles will reward you with consistent long rides.
