A few years ago, I fled the cold winter of NY and came West to learn about surfing in Los Angeles--then I stayed for good. As I've learned to read a tide chart, wait for swell and balance on my board, I've become well-acquainted with some great places to go before and after surf sessions. Here's how you can have the full experience of surfing in Los Angeles, with suggestions for where to go for surfing lessons, boards and gear, clothing, food and drinks and more.

Whatever you want for surfing in Los Angeles (or wherever you paddle out!), they've got it at ZJ's. Surfboards, wetsuits, booties, wax, flip-flops, clothing for men and women. You can rent foam boards (perfect for beginners) here, too.
Say what you want about Uggs; nothing feels better on your feet after a surf session (especially if you're surfing in Los Angeles -- it might be sunny and 70 most of the year, but the water is always chilly). This shop always stocks 'em.
