Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
From the long sandy beaches in the north of the county to Sunset Cliffs and Point Loma, every inch of this coastline has been thoroughly scoured by generations of surfers. Its? line-ups have featured in countless magazine spreads and these days dozens of web-cams spy on the waves, 24/7. Despite this huge media exposure the reality is that San Diego surf is not exactly world-class, although like everywhere, it can be. The exposure to N swells is good, but not California's best, whilst the S swell exposure is not always ideal. With at least 80 spots from Camp Pendleton to Silver Strand, there's plenty of good waves to be had and, of course, plenty of amped locals to share them with. There are so many good breaks to the north, between San Onofre and Cardiff, it's impossible to list them all here. In summary, San Onofre offers punchy peaks at The Point, backed up by miles of empty beachbreaks towards the Camp Pendleton military zone. Oceanside always has something to offer from its? assortment of jetty, pier and beach breaks. A stretch of undemanding waves extends from Carlsbad to Encinatas before the impressive peak of Swami's livens things up. Long, lined up rights hold as big as it gets while the shorter lefts disappear with size, but the crowds never will! Fun well-mannered peaks grace Cardiff Reef making it a longboarders favourite.
