Being in one of the finest surfing sites in the world, riding the waves is part of who we are, here at The Grounds. Many of our members and staff are surfers or become surfers while at The Grounds. True surfers, the really great ones, develop many of the skills and qualities also needed to succeed in life – patience, determination, courage, tenacity, and self-confidence. Like most physical challenges, surfing provides a great metaphor for life.
Maintain your balance, and get back up when you fall. There is always another wave. Through high tides and low tides, we ride them all. Surfing is a great stress reliever and a healthy alternative to alcohol and drugs. In addition to the excitement and challenge, it offers a sense of timelessness that is meditative and healing.
Though surfing embodies a huge piece of our spirit and personality, we understand it’s not for everyone. We’ll encourage you to give it a try and teach you how if you get inspired. If it’s not for you, then we’ll help you discover what excites you. We offer and encourage a wide range of sports including hiking, biking, skiing, snowboarding, yoga, and kayaking. Being in Southern California, and San Diego in particular, the opportunities are endless.
