Surfing Around the World: Top 5 Places to Visit

Trying to plan a trip for vacation season can be a little stressful at times. If you’re a water enthusiast and seek thrilling activities or even moments of Zen, surfing offers both. Here are the top five places you should visit for surfing:

 San Diego, California

San Diego offers many beaches where you can find waves all year long. Start by heading to Trestles, where you’ll see some of the world’s best surfers. This is also a great spot for those looking to improve their surfing techniques. Next, head over to Oceanside, where there’s beach that stretches long enough to accommodate everyone. It’s bound to be bigger and breaking a little harder than just about every spot in San Diego’s North County. We cannot forget about our home spot, Pacific Beach. You can find us at the end of Law Street with our own little piece of paradise.

Santa Barbara, California

Rincon is the surf spot in Santa Barbara that offers a quarter-mile ride, and it’s known as the Queen of the Coast. Beginners go to Refugio State Beach, which is a favorite of the students at University of California, Santa Barbara.

Rincon Puerto Rico

Mostly a winter spot, Rincon is good for summer surfing too. Beginners and experts should try one of the best waves there, Parking Lots.

Rockaway Beach New York

Stop by the hipsters paradise at Beach 90th Street. This is the most popular spots in New York when the swell comes from the south and the wind from the north.

Bundoran, Ireland

This spot is better in the fall when the waves are smaller and the crowd is thinner. Take your surfboard and head to Tullan Strand. This is a two-mile beach break that gets great surf. After that, head southwest to Mullaghmore Strand. This beach has a beach break for beginners and an intense point break for experts.
