San Diegans love their waves. No matter what time of year, you can always find someone body surfing a shore break, boogie boarding a fast shooting barrel, or catching a wave at its crest and surfing down it for the best 10 seconds of their day.
There’s a beach for every skill level in La Jolla, making it one of the best places to learn and eventually become better at surfing.
Hi, I’m Nic. I’m one of Dennis’s friends. I’m going to tell you about 3 great beginner beaches to learn how to surf.
La Jolla Shores has smaller waves and is the perfect place to surf for your first couple of times.
Once you get the hang of it, you can walk north half a mile to scripps where the waves get a little bigger.
And if you want, you can drive just a little south of La Jolla to Tourmaline beach which is a super popular place with a great break.
It takes a bit of time but once you catch that first wave, you’ll be set.
