California Surfing Day 2021

Oceanside is an O’riginal surf town! As a mecca for surfers ranging from novice to pro, our coastal destination allows everyone to enjoy the sport of surfing along our beautiful coastline. We invite you to hit the waves on September 20th to celebrate California Surfing Day! Share your stoke for Oceanside and the state’s official sport on social media by tagging @VisitOceanside in a selfie and using the hashtags: #CaliforniaSurfingDay and #SurfOceanside!

Serious Shredders

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.

Wave Back When
