Surfing - Surf Spots

In the Surfing section you will find everything from easy, beginners’ breaks for boogie boarders and bodysurfers to serious, world-class, giant waves for true experts only. Each surfing trip is a complete chapter from a surfing guidebook and includes a detailed map, driving directions to the beach or break, and a clear description of what to expect, all produced by well-known outdoor guidebook publishers. Every surfing trail is linked to USGS topographic maps from the surf break overview page, and many also offer a host of additional features like photos, regional locator maps, tide and rip current descriptions, and interesting natural, geological, and historical information on the region. To find a fun surfing spot near you just click below on any state surfing section. Then browse by selecting a specific region or “Top Trail” from the list, or by simply clicking on the interactive state map.
