Surfing Green in Cali

Instead of channel-surfing…try surfing the mighty Pacific.

Cayuco's Surf School

Did you know that California Wine Country hosts some of the most beloved surf spots in all of California? So we think, what better way to be green than to take in the sunset and swells at famous surf spot Pico Creek in San Simeon, or hang ten in classic California style at Sand Spit in Los Osos.  Your first time?  Try a surf school like Cayucos Surf Company, which offers group and private lessons for the young and the young-at-heart.  Up and down the Central Coast, everyone from the little grom to the big kahuna will find their perfect wave.  So grab your neoprene and your board – surf’s up!

Instead of word processing…why not process your thoughts?

Nothing clears the mind like a long hike.  And when it comes to good hikes, from tiny trails off the beaten path to popular walks for the whole family, nothing beats Wine Coast Country.  For a tramp over creeks, a lake, sand dunes, and an unspoiled stretch of coastline, the Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes Center is just the thing. Or take Fido out for a stroll on the Bob Jones Bike Trail in Avila Beach.

This 1.5-mile paved path is canopied in regal sycamores and oaks, and accommodates everyone from kids on tricycles to dog-walkers.  Or, for the ultimate in secluded take-your-breath-away beauty, try Montaña de Oro State Park near Los Osos.  The park’s name, translated “Mountain of Gold,” finds its origins in the golden wildflowers that bloom every spring. Bring a picnic, work up a sweat, and then relax among the wildflowers.
