Surfing in California

Surfing California
California is arguably the surfing capital of the USA, and for good reason. California offers a variety of surfing options for the new surfers out there, as well as the seasoned surfers. Not only that but because the surf culture is so strong in California, surf shops decorate the coastline, making for some pretty nifty, surf-themed shopping trips. Surfing is the official State Sport, so this destination is only going to keep getting better and better. The entire coastline offers different types of surf spots from the more mellow ones, to the ‘expert-only’ areas. But even the most extreme surf spots can be enjoyed by everyone, spectators are encouraged at many of the beaches, so nobody has to miss out.
