Extreme? We don't think so.

Welcome to the epicenter of action sports in North America. From surfing and skateboarding to hang gliding and mountain biking to flying with a water-powered jetpack, San Diego is always on the go. Our year-round sunny climate and diverse terrain create ideal conditions for outdoor pursuits of every kind. San Diegans love an active lifestyle, and the action sports culture has influenced everything from the way we speak and dress to the local music and art scene. Actions sports industry leaders, like skateboard legend Tony Hawk, or the Flying Tomato, Shaun White, have both established their homes and headquarters here. Action sports aficionados from around the world gather at San Diego's beaches and bays, skate parks, boardwalks and BMX tracks for carefree holidays and high-performance competitions.
