We invite you to hit the waves on September 20th to celebrate California Surfing Day!

Life’s Swell. Surf O’side.
O’side is home to some serious surf pros! Our city takes pride in being a preferred training ground for the inaugural USA Olympic Surfing Team as well as USA Surfing Junior Team. The Olympic team consists of surfing professionals Kolohe Andino, John John Florence, Caroline Marks and now gold medalist Carissa Moore. Currently, USA Surfing’s juniors team trains monthly at our beautiful Oceanside Harbor Beaches. According to Brett Simpson, Head Coach of USA Surfing, the variety of surf breaks and consistent year-round waves make Oceanside an ideal location for preparing for international competition! USA Surfing CEO Greg Cruse says the Olympic surf team will continue pursuing Oceanside training opportunities in the future. If you’re lucky, you may catch a glimpse of them out practicing the next time you’re out surfing your own wave.
