    I love a great beach and this one was good. The beach itself is nice, clean, and contained a few seashells. I enjoyed walking under the pier at low tide on the rocks.

    What I didn't like was all of the druggies surrrounding the area. The pot smell was at times unbearable and I thought smoking marijuana was illegal in public places. That was a turn-off for me. I saw several people that were so high they were stumbling around.

    We were here on Saturday. Good luck finding a parking spot. We spent alot of time watching the birds and the surfers. There is a small restaurant/gift shop at the end of the pier. There are also restrooms. There are jewelry and food vendors along the beach. Great time.

    If you have a dog, this is the place to be. Very casual. Great location between two jetties with plenty of room to run. Our dogs loved it and we met friendly dog owners, both local and tourists. This is also a great place to watch the sunset!

    Great, quaint, clean, and super friendly studio. Nikki is awesome....makes everyone feel welcome. Classes are challenging yet totally adaptable to your level. Totally worth checking out!

    My two girl friends and I had so much fun on this bike tour with Jeremy and Alex! Despite the rainy morning and some lack of bike skills, they went out of their way to make the tour a good experience for us. I would highly recommend, especially if you're staying in the OB area (or not since it's a great place to spend a day regardless). Thanks again for the fun morning, Jeremy and Alex!

    Great business location and crew, everyone is extremely friendly and intentional about their work. So helpful in making sure you as the diver are prepared, comfortable, and ready to push yourself and abilities. I highly recommend taking a free diving course with Just Get Wet if you are considering getting into the sport

    I had surf lesson with Alex who was really good teacher and person as well. The lesson started with some balance exercise, after that we went to the beach and started our adventure. Alex was with us all the time and helped us to catch the waves which wasn’t that easy. Everyone from our group had at least two or three pop-ups which was great! After the lesson we could have kept the equipment for the rest of the day. I really appreciated that. I came back two days later and rented the surfing stuff for 50% off just because of my surf lesson with Alex. I definitely recommend Ocean Experience Surf School to everyone!

    Todd at Top Jolt Cycle was very accommodating in our groups need for 6 cycles. He even dropped them off at the house we were staying. The cycles lasted longer than we thighs and we were able to enjoy San Diego from a different perspective. Thanks so much Todd.

    I've taken surf lessons before, but this was by far my best experience! Our group instructor was incredibly encouraging and made sure that everyone had individual attention. I highly recommend Pacific Surf School!

    My 5 year old son was so excited to learn how to surf. Brandon was the perfect instructor for him. He was patient and encouraging and FUN! And my son thought he looked 'really cool!' Thanks so much for a great first surfing experience for our family!
