South Carlsbad State Beach Reviews
My favorite surf spot Jul 31, 2009
South Carlsbad State Beach is my favorite surf spot for a number of reasons...
1. I can always, even during tourist season, find parking there. This is largely due to the fact that right next to the free parking area is a campground, where most of the tourists are parked, and there is also a neighborhood across the street to park in, just in case the free parking area is full.
2. While it does get crowded here, I can always seem to find a spot where I can go and surf without having to watch out for other surfers, or worse...tourists who don't know that giant surfboards careening towards them on a powerful wave can be dangerous.
3. The waves, be them big or small (I prefer them kind of small, actually, because I suck at surfing), are always surfable...at least on my longboard.
Anyway, next time you are looking for a mellow place to surf, boogie board, or just play on the beach, try South Carlsbad State Beach....but if you see me on my surfboard, get out of the way, I'm not as in control as I look like!!!!!!
