Whether you are just getting your feet wet, or already know the thrill of getting barreled, Surfhouse Adventures invites surfers of all levels to experience the stoke of surfing in southern California. Your days begin with a guided surf session to one of the beautiful local beaches. Here is what a day with Surfhouse Adventures could look like:

  • Rise and shine: The surf is usually best in the morning. Prepare for your session with a light breakfast and some coffee from Surfhouse Adventures' neighborhood coffee shop to get you amped for the waves.
  • Morning surf session: Start your day the local way. Enjoy awesome morning conditions and drop into some fun waves with one of the local surf guides.
  • California burrito: Lunch like a local. Nothing says San Diego like the classic California burrito. Don’t forget to add guacamole.

  • Second surf session: Can’t wait to get back in the water? Make your way back to the beach for an afternoon spent putting your new surf skills to use.
  • Stop to watch the sunset: Pause to watch one of the famous sunsets. Keep your eyes focused just as the sun drops below the horizon and you may be lucky enough to see the elusive “green flash” or a local pod of dolphins.
  • Explore the local flavor: One of the top surf towns in the world, Encinitas, has a ton to offer. Head to one of the many restaurants to grab a bite to eat and enjoy some local craft beer. Cheers!

Testimonials

  • Review by a traveler from Stockholm, Sweden

    "We had the best time with California Surf Adventures! We had a lot of fun and were really well taken care of. Nikki and Sander were really helpful and welcoming and showed us around in Encinitas and San Diego. We were a bit unfortunate with the weather during a couple of days of our surf week, but they did what they could to make us happy and instead took us stand up paddle boarding one morning. These friendly and hospitable guys will really do what they can to make your stay great! However, an early morning surf session followed by a breakfast burrito is the best way to start your day."

    "I honestly would have never have experienced California the way Nikki & Sander showed us had it not been for them! The day I came back to the UK my friend & I were looking at flights to return to Encinitas asap! They're so thoughtful, fun & attentive they made my trip 100% more exciting than I could have planned alone. Forever appreciative, you guys are the best! Hopefully see you again soon!"
