What's the best place to live in Southern California?
Agree with Wade Mcmillan
- Manhattan Beach, CA (El Porto - mainly Winter swells)
- Huntington Beach, CA (picks up all swells)
- La Jolla, CA (picks up all swells)
If you can drive 10-20 mins Encinitas, CA is hands down the best place to surf every day.
There are a few choices. To start with, you will need plenty of money for housing, or be willing to share a small living space with others, because this living arrangement will not come cheap in SoCal.
That being said, the most consistent wave zones in this area are Silver Strands or Hollywood Beach in Oxnard, Huntington in Orange County, or possibly Trestles in San Clemente. Trestles is a longer walk because it is within a state park.
