Discussion article for the meetup : San Francisco & Tortuga Go Surfing
Low-key, afternoon fun at the beach for beginners & amateurs. I'll be offering rides from central San Francisco down to Pacifica, where the surf shop rents wetsuits & boogieboards or surfboards for about $20 total.
The surf shop has a free, suburban-style parking lot in a plaza with several good places to get lunch, and the back door opens right onto the beach. There are great views of the waves and the surrounding hills. Surf is usually light (2-6 ft waves), if a little choppy.
I'll be leaving San Francisco at 1 pm, arriving at Pacifica by 2 pm, and leaving around 6 pm. Everyone is welcome to join me for whatever part of that time they like; if you need a ride, please RSVP as soon as possible by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or texting (954) 464-3040.
This event will be repeated several more times over the summer, but we'll all get better as time goes on, so join us now while we're still just as awkward as you are!
