Celebrate California's first "Surfing Day" on September 20th

California declares surfing the official state sport and September 20th "Surfing Day".

From Fort Point under the iconic Golden Gate Bridge to the virtually unparalleled Rincon Point in Ventura, from "Leo Carillo to La Joya and up to Pismo", the thousand surf spots of the California Coast are as much a part of its culture as the redwoods and Hollywood. And now thanks to Governor Jerry Brown and the passing of SCR-122, surfing has become California's official state sport.

The bill's author, Al Muratsuchi states:

“No other sport represents the California Dream better than surfing — riding the waves of opportunity and living in harmony with nature."

We wholeheartedly agree.

To say that we here at The Outbound are fans of surfing in California would be an understatement. It is our home and in many ways, our first love. Here are some of our favorite surf spots to celebrate the California Dream. You can find us (most likely) at Ocean Beach.
