What we're about

It All Starts With the Desire To Conquer Our Fear Of The Ocean.
When We Finally Succeed; Our Love Thrives and Adventure Begins.

Join South Bay Surf Club Today!!!

We are a group of surfers beginner to advanced who surf together all through the South Bay and beyond.Our goal is to find friends to surf with to be more comfortable and safe in the water. Weather you are brand new or a skilled surfer you will find someone to surf with in this group.Here is how you could become part of this awesome surf community.

South Bay Surf Club (SBSC) was founded in May 2013 as a community of people who share a love of surfing. From its humble beginnings of just a few local folks looking for someone to paddle out with, it has grown into a flourishing group of over 1,000 surfers who share the stoke. SBSC thrives on its community-based style of leadership, including 10 main group organizers who lead the way in planning events for all to join in. With over 50 events throughout the year, including international trips to locations such as Baja, Hawaii and Panama, it's no secret that our group loves surfing. Any given day of the week, our group members can be found in the waters of various beaches in South Bay, San Onofre, and even up to County line (just to name a few). Beyond the planned events, you're almost always guaranteed to find a buddy to surf with if the urge strikes most any time of the day by hitting up our community message board. Here you can also find tips on locations to paddle out, surf conditions, gear needed or wanted, or even an invitation for delicious post-surf meal!

And the sense of community doesn't stop there. SBSC is constantly growing and expanding its population with each new event. It's known for its broad base of new surfers. Many of our members had never surfed before coming to one of our events. In fact, they may not even have a board. But rest assured, any newbie is warmly welcomed and made to feel right at home with their new group of surfing friends. Our more experience surfers are happy to lend a helping hand, give tips on how to catch a wave, and cheer you on as you ride your first wave. We love sharing the stoke, building friendships, and getting that natural high from surfing that can be found nowhere but the water.

South Bay Surf Club is one of the most diverse groups of surfers in the area. We are comprised of seasoned surfers decades strong, those who surfed long ago and are trying to get back into it, green surfers, and complete beginners. Our members ride both short and long board, and of course foamies! We come from all walks of life, different countries of origin, and even generations spanning the decades. But one thing holds us all together: We LOVE to surf. A day spent in the water with South Bay Surf Group will be filled with fun, laughter, and memories! Oh, and shakas!
