JULY 16, 2015

Since first brought over to the mainland masses from Hawaii, surfing has ridden an ever-growing wave of popularity, especially in Southern California where the sport seems sequenced into the region’s DNA.

But if your lineage was never part of the lineup and any song from the Beach Boys still leaves you baffled, it is not too late. Drop into one of the following six coastal resorts that offer surf experiences for all skill levels—whether learning from a legend or having a custom board shaped just for you—and see why, in Southern California, summer is indeed endless.
