Surfing is a popular pastime for the young and old throughout San Diego County especially on famous Swami's Beach in Encinitas, a few miles south of Carlsbad.

Famous from the Beach Boy?s hit song Surfin? USA,' in Encinitas is one of San Diego?s prime surf spots. In January 2002, Encinitas was named ?One of the Top 10 Surf Towns in the United States ? by Surfer Magazine.
Along with ?huarachi sandals and bushy , bushy blonde hairdos..., 'Swami?'s Beach offers big and challenging waves for experienced surfers.

From Vicki (expresso):
The beach below the cliff is called "Swami's" and is the best surfing beach in San Diego County, has an nice reff and off-shore southern-facing break. High cliff, access from 101, populated by experienced surfers, a "locals" beach.
