U.S. West Coast - Surf and Camp?

« on: September 30 2007 15:09:00 »

I'm about to embark on a west coast surf trip with a friend and was wondering if anyone knew of any good hostels and/or camping spots on the west coast - we will be starting in san diego and moving all the way up cali.  I have done some online research, but wanted to here from all of you...thanks!

I live near Trestles and there's a couple of places to camp nearby at State Beach and San Onofre.  Also a couple of surf schools operate in the area. You can probably get filled in at the Rip Curl outlet or theres a few independent surf shops on El Camino real...Stewart, etc.

I broke my rib at Uluwatu the 5th day of a 16 day trip. OUCH!!! missed one day.  Took two painkillers and drank a Bintang each morning and surfed 2-3 times the rest of the trip- but it hurt-real bad.
Local are the same all over the world (just about, there are some exceptions) treat a person with respect, give a few waves away, don't be greedy, and the most important ingredient is SURF LIKE A PRO so they will respect you.  If you can't rip don't surf a spot where you don't belong.
The local jerks are jerks in and out of the water.  Being a jerk works... it bumbs alot of people out of the water.  Mind games affect the way ya surf sometimes, thats why they do it.
