A Glimpse into Marin’s Thriving, Tight-Knit Surfing Culture
The coast of Marin is a virtual postcard of dramatic cliffs, windswept beaches and forested headlands. It’s known for rugged scenic beauty, coastal hiking trails and sailing—but surfing? Not usually what comes to mind. Yet prime wave-riding spots abound, including point breaks (where breaking waves wrap around a bend in the coast) and beach breaks that rival other beaches anywhere in California and, some would argue, the world.
Unbeknownst to many, Marin is also home to a tight-knit, extremely dedicated community of surfers who range from stoked newbies to seasoned pros. Not to be confused with the tanned Gidgets of So Cal, Northern California surfers are a breed apart; the icy waters require a fortitude unnecessary in warmer climes. And within this world, Marin’s surf community has its own unique subculture—with events, contests and lessons that attract new generations of surfers young and old.
