Welcome to the Great Escape surf weekend! This is a trip designed for all levels of surfers. Whether you are wanting to learn to surf for the first time, or spend a beautiful weekend practicing your skills, this is an awesome trip for you. We will be staying in San Mateo Campground, within San Onofre State Beach. A 1.5-mile Nature Trail connects the campground to Trestles Beach, a world class surfing site. This will be a weekend of sun, surf, camping, and bonding with fellow ocean lovers!

About the Trip & Itinerary

Saturday:  Come meet at the arc for a Pancake breakfast before heading out for our surf adventure. We'll head to the beach for instruction on the basics of surfing. After spending a few hours catching waves, a hearty lunch is definitely in order.  The afternoon plan is up to the group! Participants can choose to spend more time “shredding the gnar,” , relaxing on the beach, or  playing games. We'll then drive to our beautiful campsite to make some dinner, enjoy a bonfire, and rest after a long day.

Sunday (Day 3): We will wake up and enjoy breakfast before hitting the waves for another morning of surfing.We'll enjoy a picnic lunch before   heading back to Point Loma. Anticipate being back around 3pm. 

Price >> $55.00


This trip is as physically demanding as participants choose to make it! For beginners, paddling in the water for long periods of time can be tiring! Feel free to take as many breaks as needed. Some people choose to surf for the entire time, others give it a try and find that they enjoy spending time simply playing in the waves instead.

Fitness Rating: 1 out of 5 difficulty

Safety & Risk Management

The guides from the Outdoor Leadership program leading this excursion are  surfers who can read the waves, tides, and currents on the shores. We will have a safety talk before we head out to make sure everyone is familiar with the area and how to stay safe.
