Eli Howard Surf School is in Cardiff and within walking distance - located in the Cardiff Campground at the bottom of the hill. Go down Chesterfield Street cross the Coast Highway at the light and go North on the coast highway path about ¼ mile to the main entrance of the campground. You will see the students in the water directly in front of the Camp Store/Bull Taco Shop. There’s bathrooms, lifeguards, a camp store and great views and food at Bull Taco. Leucadia Surf School, Encinitas Surf Lessons, and Moonlight Beach Surf Camps are located in Moonlight Beach, approx. 2.5 miles north of Cardiff at the base of Encinitas Boulevard. This beach has bathrooms, showers, lifeguards and good food at the snack bar. The best place to park is up above, in the parking lot on the hill behind the lifeguard tower. You can also park on the street if you can find a spot.
For beginners, it’s best to use as big a board as you can get! A nine or ten foot long soft board is usually sufficient for adults. Children can use smaller foam boards in the 8 foot range. Check the water temperature because you may also want a wetsuit (which may be included with the lesson fee). We have several wetsuits here, too.

The farmland in the Central Valley (where we get our water) drains the groundwater at a rate faster than can be replaced by rainfall and snowpack. Please keep this in mind when showering. Thank you!!

Cliff has owned and lived in this home in Cardiff since 1984. I joined him here eight years ago. We both love the casual, friendly Cardiff surf culture. We enjoy surfing, traveling, art, and music. Many friends - and friends of friends - have stayed here over the years, and we're looking forward to hosting people from all over the world. We love to share the beauty of this area! Let us know what you are interested in, and we can help you design a wonderful visit. Please contact me if you have any questions about our listing or the area in general. Happy travels! Karin
