  • Mission Beach

    Most Thursday & Saturday Practices

    DIRECTIONS: Mission Beach is our main practice beach, located 20 miles west of El Cajon. Take I8 west past I5 and take exit #1 for W Mission Bay Dr/Sports Arena Blvd and turn right at the end of the exit. Go about 1/2 mile on W MB Dr. and then take the ramp on the right onto W Mission Bay Dr. Take W Mission Bay Dr. 1.5 miles to Mission Blvd and turn right. Pass the roller coaster and the rest of Belmont Park, and then turn right into the parking lot. Look for a parking spot on the far southwest side of the parking lot. We usually meet near the cement picnic benches, the boardwalk or straight out on the beach. Parking is free.

  • Scripps Pier

    Most Tuesday Practices

    DIRECTIONS: Scripps is a fun place to surf, but a little further away than Mission. With the new addition to the 52 Freeway, Scripps is now only 2.5 miles further though. From El Cajon, take I8 West to the CA-67 N and go 1.7 miles to the new CA-52 W exit. Take 52 about 20 miles and then turn right on La Jolla Shores Dr. Go about 1 mile and turn left at the stop light at El Paseo Grande. If you are dropping off, you can enter into the Scripps Institute parking lot, but don't leave your car un-attended or you may be ticketed. If you need to park, look for a spot on El Paseo Grande. Sometimes when crowded, you may have to park up on La Jolla Shores Dr. Street parking is free.

  • Ocean Beach

    Contest | October 22nd

    DIRECTIONS: Our contest at Avalanche in Ocean Beach is located between OB Pier and Dog Beach. Ocean Beach is also about 20 miles from El Cajon. Take I8 West until the freeway ends and then turn left onto Sunset Cliffs Blvd. Go about a half mile then vere right onto W. Point Loma Blvd. Take the 3rd right onto Voltaire St and go straight down to the OB Dog Beach Parking Lot. Look for a spot as close to the south end of the lot as possible. Parking is free.

  • La Jolla Shores

    Contest | February 2nd

    DIRECTIONS: From El Cajon, take I8 West to the CA-67 N and go 1.7 miles to the new CA-52 W exit. Take 52 about 20 miles and then turn right on La Jolla Shores Dr. Go about a half mile and turn left onto Calle Frescota. This street sign can be hard to see for some, so if you pass it up you can also take the next left onto Camino Del Oro and backtrack to the parking lot. Calle Frescota is better since it takes you straight to the La Jolla Shores parking lot entrance. Park as close to the North side as possible. Our contest tent has been on the grass just north of the bathrooms, so check that area first. Otherwise look for the other team tents on the beach. Parking is free.

  • Crystal Pier

    Practice |

    DIRECTIONS: From El Cajon take I8 West about 16 miles to the West Mission Bay Dr./Sports Arena Blvd. (Exit 1) and then turn right onto W. Mission Bay Dr. Road turns into Ingraham St. Take Ingraham past Pacific Beach Dr. to Grand Ave and turn left. Take Grand to Mission Blvd. and turn right. Take Grand north and start looking for a place to park between Garnet and Diamond. It can be hard to find parking on the West side of Mission Blvd, so plan an extra 20 minutes to find a parking spot. If nothing is available on the west side of Mission, then start looking in the residential streets on the East side of Mission. Parking is free.

  • Moonlight Beach

    Practice | November 16th

    DIRECTIONS: Another favorite of ours is Moonlight. From El Cajon, take I8W to 67N and take the new 52W exit. Take 52W about 13 miles, then take the 805 North exit. Take 805N about 5 miles where it merges onto 5 North. Take 5N about 10 miles, then take Encinitas Blvd West exit (exit 42). On Encinitas Blvd West, go about a half mile and cross Coast Hwy. Encinitas Blvd turns into B St., keep heading to the beach. Turn left on 3rd St and go up the hill, take your first right onto C St. Take C all the way down and look for spots in small parking lot first. If no spots, go back up C and turn left into the large parking lot. Usually spots here and parking is free.
