San Diego's Outdoor Sports Scene

Ride, Surf, Skate and More

San Diego's the town that can't sit still. We run, ride, surf, skate and spend our days playing in the great outdoors. At night we sleep soundly, knowing tomorrow will be another perfect day to get up and do it all over again!

New York may be the city that never sleeps, but San Diego's the town that can't sit still. We run, ride, surf, skate and spend our days playing in the great outdoors. At night we sleep soundly, knowing tomorrow will be another perfect day to get up and do it all over again.

Surfing

With its close relatives bodyboarding and bodysurfing, surfing has been placed in a class by itself. Learn about some of the popular surf spots in the area, both easy and challenging, and the local surf culture and conditions to expect at different times of year.

Skateboarding

Find a brief background on the San Diego skate scene, a hot bed of superstar professional talent, and tips on where to skate around San Diego County.

Offroad: Hiking, Motorcycles and more

For anything that takes you off the beaten track, find out where to go if you want to ride motorcycles or mountain bikes, four-by through the Borrego desert, hike to the top of a local peak, or go climb a rock at Mt. Woodson.

Water Sports

With 70 miles of coastline, San Diego is a water lover's paradise. From Oceanside in the north, to Imperial Beach in the south, there are ample places to kit the waves and try wakeboarding, waverunners, kitesurfing and kayaking.


So get out there, go big, and make the most of San Diego's mountain biking and hiking around Julian, offroad adventures in East County, water sports all along the Pacific Ocean.
