surfing san francisco

« on: October 01 2007 19:10:00 »

Im a beginner/novice surfer and im visiting san fran this thu till next tue.
I have 2 days to get some surf in.

Ive looked on the net and it seems ocean beach is the nearest (i havnt got my own transport)

Thing is ive also heard this is a pretty tough beach and inpredictable rips have got even the most advanced surfers in trouble.

Does anybody have any suggestions where i could go to suit my ability and hire a board?

When your in Frisco, go to the serf club on Geary Street; we feature Richard Gere sticks and a hot wax coating for your stick special! Then we'll paddle together into the Sunset at Fort Point- if you're really a bad, nasty man , I'll take you tubing in the Farallon daisy chain. Smooch!

Rod -nice, Christian name or is it what you wish for? Some innocent transplant wants to experience this cosmopolitan city's 'roundness' and you can only refer to your limp 'stick'.  I suggest Provincetown sandbars for a complete tubular hoedown, Rod, and, for our visitor, Pacifica has the hidden coves, barrels, scenic views along with eclectic locals. Chow!

Dear Mr. Rod, can't we just get along? There's plenty of room for expression whether Half Moon Bay jetties or Bolinas Bay- room for all without self-imposed ego trippers at 'Maverick's' and the 'Lane'; learn this lesson young person and this area will thrive as Southern California shrivels and blows away with the Santa Anas.
