Los Angeles Surfing Vacation

Explore Surfing in Los Angeles


Novice and advanced surfers alike can enjoy the waves in Los Angeles. September through November is the best time to hit the waves, with typically warmer and cleaner water. Beginners might want to sign up for lessons available at Santa Monica Beach, in Malibu’s Surfrider Beach or at Manhattan Beach. Surfrider will attract most, but other spots like Zuma Beach, Leo Carillo and Topanga can offer ideal conditions and perhaps less of a crowd. If you need to learn all or just borrow a board, surfing schools and board rentals are available at many beaches, including from Learn to Surf L.A. and Surfing L.A.
