Perhaps you packed your suitcase while undecided about whether or not to try your hand at surfing. Or, because it's December, you ruled the beach out as an option. Minds change and winter weather definitely isn't the same in San Diego as it is elsewhere (it's better). Rather than skip out on the fun, head to Surf Diva in La Jolla Shores for new beach gear and sign up for surf lessons while you're at it. Why not?

While you shop, be the envy of your friends and consider booking a surf or SUP lesson. Anyone age 5 and over can sign up for surf lessons at Surf Diva, a fully licensed, insured and well-respected school. Lessons take place at La Jolla Shores beach, a quick walk from the Surf Diva store. Book private, group or even organize a private group, like a bachelorette party. Surf Diva can provide the gear as a part of the rental, but feel free to buy your own in the store.
