Surfing School - Surfing - A Place To Learn


So you just moved to San Diego and want to know where to learn to surf? Or you lived here for a while and got to thinking, that could be me out there? Well everyone has to learn sometime, and you don't necessarily want to go out to learn just anywhere. Here are some good beginner spots to learn to surf.

La Jolla Shores
Mission / Pacific Beach
Carlsbad State Beach
Leucadia Beach

In general, a beginner wants to find a break with waves that look crumbly and slow. Try to find small waves and a sandy beach; you'll be walking around a lot. Don't paddle into a crowded break; you'll likely be a hazard. Don't surf alone; there will be nobody to help if you're in trouble. Surf where there are people present but not right on top of them where you'll be in the way.

Other times, you can just ask around for good beginner surf breaks when you're shopping around for equipment. Most shop proprietors will be happy to assist, especially if you're making a purchase.

If anyone has some spots to list as good beginner spots, just let me know and I'll add them.
