surfing in san diego

My name is Gavin Bechtold and I started GoSurfingSanDiego.com in 2020. Sure, Surfline is great but it doesn’t quite share all the details that surfers are seeking. I built this site both for locals to help them make the most of their surf sessions and tourists visiting San Diego to help them capture the essence of surfing in California.

While I grew up on the East coast, I have been living and surfing all over San Diego for more than a decade. My journey started in Pacific Beach, where Crystal Pier was my backyard wave I could walk to. Now, living in Encinitas; Swamis is a mile from my home. My favorite waves in San Diego include Black’s Beach, Dip in the Road, and D Street.

Today, my website serves as the #1 source for surfing in San Diego. Consider my website a local hub for surf spot reviews. You will also find information on the best surfing gear and can book private surf lessons in San Diego with yours truly.
