According to the Encyclopedia of Surfing, Oceanside is one of SoCal’s most consistent surf spots. With old school vibes, it’s a real deal surf town centrally located on the northern end of San Diego. It’s the perfect place to set up base camp and hop between different attractions throughout the county.
With tons of local surf industry, such as “shapers alley,” a strip of surfboard shaping shops home to many of Oceanside’s premier board shapers, the city really embodies surf culture as a way of life. With a variety of beaches and breaks, it’s easy to find something to satisfy surfers of almost all levels, and thus is the perfect place to take a lesson.
