Surf’s Up Destinations: San Francisco
When people think of surfing in California, chances are they visualize gorgeous coastlines and killer waves - in Southern California. While it’s true So Cal is known for its large surfing population, Nor Cal has quite a few things to offer as well. In fact, So Cal surfing has been so infiltrated by the international surf circuit, plastered with promotions and dominated by elitist competition that many who surf for pleasure are turning to the Nor Cal coastlines for a more rewarding time out on the water.
When it comes to this alternative surfing experience, San Francisco is a great city to try. While this region is obviously famous for other things, from computer geniuses to one of the largest gay pride parades in existence, surfing in San Fran is becoming more and more popular as the wave riding community discovers all it has to offer.
