Entrance for one day is $15.7.   Surf Old Man’s (beginner level) or Trails (beginner/intermediate level) all day and afternoon.8.    Drive to “Board and Brew” for some of the best sandwiches ever. Happy hour drink specials here.9.  Grab a coffee next door at “Macha” to revive.10.   Head to San Clemente Pier to surf T-Street and/or San Clemente Pier.

Side notes:
1. San Onofre State Beach Park surfing spots have rocks near the shore that you will have to walk on and around to get into the water. Don’t be afraid to invest in some water socks (I felt it was necessary to purchase some since my foot was still recovering from my sea urchin accident in Hawaii). You can find some good water socks on Amazon. Many are cheap, super comfortable, protective, warm, and great for surfing and any beach activity. Check these that I found on Amazon: BPS Low Cut ‘Soft Skin’ Water Socks or High Cut ‘Storm’Water Socks.
2. San Clemente Pier has little or no rocks while walking out into the water. It’s great that there aren’t rocks, but still be cautious walking out into the water. According to some locals, stingrays like to nestle in the shallow water in the sand. Don’t be too nervous though. All you have to do is shuffle your feet while walking out in the water and that will be enough to scare them off.
3. A weekend getaway to San Clemente may be worth it if you are coming from the Midwest or east coast. However, it will obviously cut into your surf time, add more travel time, and most likely will be a bit more expensive. If this is the case for you, look into some surf spots in North Carolina, Florida, Rhode Island, Maryland, and New York to save time and money. Otherwise, west coast peeps: San Clemente is for you! Find some cheaper flights on Google Flights into Santa Ana most days of the year.
4.  If San Onofre is too busy, check out the surf report at “Doheny State Beach” (also has some beginner surfing areas). We didn’t get a chance to experience Doheny, but it’s still a decently close driving distance from San Clemente. I also heard some great things about it from a local at a surf shop.
5. If you plan to go to San Onofre State Park, be sure to bring all the necessities you may need for all day. Not only is this park great for surfing, but it has some good fishing spots, beach volleyball, and even areas to grill and picnic on the beach. If you decide to leave the park and have plans to come back, you may run into a long car line that could mean minutes (or even hours) to not only be able to enter, but wait for a parking spot to open up. If possible, stay at the park all day until you are ready to leave for good…hence bringing everything you need for the day.
6. Make sure to apply sunscreen if you plan to be out in the water all day. Though you may have some clouds, you can bet your bottom dollar that you’ll still catch some of those UV rays and may get burnt, meaning being uncomfortable the rest of your stay.
7. Drink a lot of water. If you’re a beginner like me, you will be gulping a ton of salt water while nose-diving or fighting to get above the waves. Lots of salt water will make you thirsty.  Also, you won’t realize how much you are sweating while out in the water getting your surf on, and since you will be in the water all day, you want to hydrate before, during, and after a long session (beginner or not).

8. If you have time, try to physically prepare your body. Practice popping up and work your upper body. You’ll be using your arms and necks muscles a lot, so be sure to build up a bit of muscular strength and endurance.

9. Watch some tutorial videos on how to surf. While you’re at it, watch some surf competitions to observe (and get pumped up).
 If you’re itching to go surfing and a week long surf vacation isn’t in your nearest future, plan a weekend surf getaway to San Clemente, California. No matter what surfing level you are, you will be sure to find some rad waves to catch (advanced surfers, be sure to check out Trestles) that will satisfy your rip craving. It can be done in one weekend. I know this because the itinerary listed is the exact itinerary we used on our surfing weekend getaway to San Clemente this month. We surfed our butts off and still had time to experience in and around the city. Though my body hurt for 6 days after our trip, it was worth every single second. It was the best weekend surfing trip ever. I highly recommend this itinerary. You won’t be disappointed, I promise. So, what are you waiting for? Book that trip, skip the planning, and enjoy your amazing weekend surf trip in San Clemente, California.

Safe Travels,Veronica

I looked for surfboard rentals while passing through San Clemente and found a link to his shop. Had no real expectations but; to get a decent surfboard and at a reasonable price. Matt met and exceeded them. He went out of his way to pick up new boards, ones’ I recommended and got back to me as quickly as he could. Only issue I had was the type of construction of the board. Still had fun that day and highly recommend you check him out when in town. He gives great advise due to his local knowledge and is straight up when I dealt with him.

My friend and I walked in and asked for board rentals and lessons. Matt called up another instructor, Lexie, and got us in the water in 20 minutes to get some surfing in at T Street  before the tide came all the way in. He made sure we could paddle out, time a green wave, and pop up. The next day he looked up the surf report for us and sent us down to Old Man’s and told us to paddle all the way out to catch the first breakers and ride the longest waves. Matt really helped us make the most of the situation at our beginner skill level, and we really benefitted from his long local experience. P.S. get the booties, because the stingrays are nasty without them.
