Default Good Place to Surf and Snowboard

Anybody know where a good place is for surfing and riding. Trying to figure out where I wanna go. I thought Tahoe because of the lake and resorts. I like the whole outdoor, hiking, kayaking, and surfing thing. What's the best place to live for all of this stuff. I don't really know any good resorts near the Cali coast.

there are none close by. The closest ski resort/beach combo I can think of here in So Cal is Mt Baldy to Laguna Beach, it's about 60 miles between but could take a few hours in traffic. You could even do both in a day, if you had the right wetsuit. I've been in the ocean in Feb and March and it's doable with a 5mm suit. The down side is Baldy is not open very often, it's at 10k but they don't make snow so.....in years like this you're SOL.


If you only care about riding in the park you'd be in luck as Big Bear is about 3-5 hours away from many beaches.


Mammoth is going to be about 5-7hours from any beach in either the Central Coast or SoCal. If you're thinking Tahoe, well tack another 3 hours of travel time onto that. Maybe more.

Well I mean surf during summer and snowboard in the winter. I like Tahoe a ton because it has the forest and mountain area, but the coast is like five hours away. Too far for a weekend surf.

edit: Nvm about the five hour thing. Just read your post. I think I might just do Tahoe. Maybe check New Zealand, but anything outside the US is a little out of the question. Looks like just surfing trips to the coast for me.

+1 New Zealand. You can Snow board, Downhill MTB, Surf and Skate all in one day if you so desired (thick wet suit is a must). Less than 2 hours drive from mountains to shore. Yeah, I know its a world away from the USA...

Aside from NZ, in the US, SoCal. I have had several days of surf/skate/snowboard. There are several resorts in socal within 2hours of just about anywhere, even Santa Barbara. You can get both epic, however on average, they can be pretty average.

Where are you snowboarding that is two hours away from Santa Barbara??!? And what roads are you taking to get across the valley? Ok, maaaaaaybe I could see SB to Mtn Hign in two hours but that would be haulin'


If you're talking about China Peak and you made if there from SB there in two hours...Im impressed!

but yeah, all the so cal resorts are kinda meh at best. Don't know about the surfing, I just swim in the ocean.

You can get to Mountain Lie pretty quick from Santa Barbara. I forget the other one we went to sometimes. Been years since I lived there, theres 1 road that cuts across the valley super nice tho, one of my favorite non-coastals in Cali.

FWIW anything north of Santa Barbara for surf and you are dealing with COLD water. Not cold, FUCKING COLD. You can see the California coast makes a sharp turn at Jalama Beach, about an hour north of Santa Barbara, where the water plunges another 10-15 degrees colder, which makes a huge fucking difference. I've surfed there and north of there in 48degree water, but thats not alot of fun. There is alot of really good surf in central Cal, but it is remote, cold as fuck and requires a certain level of seriousness not unlike BC riding.

edit: its the 126, and I guess its closer to 3 hours, we drove fast

You don't have to live in Tahoe. Where I'm at, Tahoe is an hour and 15 minutes away, and you can get to the coast in about 2-2 1/2 hours. Everything is close enough for day trips.

Depends what you drive...




You should try San Francisco bay area... 2 hours from the surf and 3 from the pow. Lots of rock and forests in between.
