INSPIRATION GUIDE

WANT TO LEARN?
Plenty of great outfitters offer surf lessons in Ventura. Some surf shops
offer lessons, too (or they can put you in touch with folks who do), but
either way a good surf shop is a must visit. If you're buying equipment
(basically a board and a wetsuit; surfing is a minimalist's dream), they'll
help you pick out what's best for you, because surfboard design can be
a confusing science. A local surf shop, staffed with local surfers, is also a
great place for invaluable tips - like what spots are breaking best today.
A few top picks ...

SURF SCHOOLS
* Ventura Makos Surf Camp
Makos is owned by Jeff Belzer, a respected surfer in the community,
and he handpicks his instructors; not just surfers, but also EMTs and
lifeguards, and the level of professionalism shows.
* Mary Osborne Surf
Professional surfer, Ventura native, and outgoing adventurer, Osborne's
love of surfing is infectious. One class for ladies combines surfing,
yoga, and a champagne brunch.
* Surfclass.com
Run by the also-infectious "Chipper Bro" Bell, the instructors are
second to none. Bell promises that surfing will change your life forever.
He's right.

SURF SHOPS
* Ventura Surf Shop
VSS has been the go-to shop for locals since 1961. It's a store for surfers,
owned by surfers, and stocked with boards made by local surfer/shapers.
It's also a two-minute drive from C-Street.
* Wave Front Surf Shop
Wave Front is just a few doors down from the Ventura Surf Shop.
Owner Randy Schaefer has surfed for over 50 years. He knows his stuff
and his store is stocked accordingly.
* Walden Surfboards
A long-time local shop (1965), Walden specializes in world-class
longboards. Few know shaping, and the local waters, like Steve Walden.
His boards are distributed around the world.
* Rip Curl Surf Shop
Part of the global Rip Curl umbrella, the store on California Street stocks
just about everything surf (including plenty of clothing), making it a
great place to shop for both surfers and non-surfers.
* Proctor Surfboards
A real surfboard shop, which is why there's just a small showroom up
front: All the magic, and concentration, happens in the back. Todd
Proctor has been custom shaping surfboards for 25 years for some of the
best surfers in the world.
* Seaward Surf & Sport
The shop is only a half-block from the beach. And they offer lessons.
