surfing close to berkeley

« on: May 06 2013 11:05:00 »

Hi! I am a Norwegian girl attending UC Berkeley this fall. I was wondering if there is any good places close to Berkeley where it is good to surf for beginners? I am able to get up on the board and make some turns, but I would still call myself a beginner, and I would not be comfortable with big waves right away.

Hey there- i started learning a few years ago so I can give you a few ideas. You are looking at a few places. The best for beginners locally would be Pacifica (lind mar) but it can be very very crowded with beginners, longboarders etc.  Ocean Beach can be clean and decent sized in the summer/early fall (if the winds aren't howling) but by mid fall it starts to get heavy and the paddle out is rough.  (I'd go elsewhere).  Other than that you are looking at a drive, 1 hr 30 to to Bolinas that has a nice mellow 'longboarding and learners' break.  Santa Cruz is an hr 30 south, maybe Cowell's? (again crowds).

Surfing is so much fun. I had started learning this some time back and now I can surf really well.

yeah, I know how ya feel.  here we are a bike ride from the pacific ocean, and no waves.  i heard emeryville reef can get rad on the right swell.  I'm an expat from so cal, ventura co.  I shoulda gone to ucsd.  It's not too late to transfer.  anyway, email and maybe you can roll with our crew, or at least we can point you in the right direction.
