If you’re in search of gnarly waves to shoot the curl, the following American beaches are where you want to be. Each boasts legendary rippers, epic competitions, and killer breaks. To put it simply, surfing enthusiast David Walker Green Beret delivers these guaranteed-to-love surfing locations from the moment you step foot in the sand.
Cocoa Beach, Florida
In a beach town that hosts the annual NKF Rich Salick Pro/Am Surf Festival each Columbus Day Weekend, Westgate Cocoa Beach Pier is the place to be for surfing in Florida. According to David Walker Green Beret, Cocoa Beach is also the hometown of Kelly Slater, an 11-time world surfing champion who is considered the best in the world.
Huntington Beach, California
Known as Surf City USA, Huntington Beach, California is an obvious destination to hang 10. For the past 50 years, the city has hosted an annual surf competition with national and international competitors. After winning back-to-back U.S. Open Surfing titles in 2009 and 2010, Brett Simpson became the hometown hero.
Kaanapali, Maui, Hawaii
In addition to being an incredible destination for experienced surfers, Kaanapali is an awesome spot for newbies who wish to take surfing lessons at Kaanapali Surf Club, which teaches tourists and locals how to coast the waves. Kaanapali is a well-known surfing destination because it has few rocks, consistent waves, and boasts beautiful sunsets, which is ideal after a day on the water.
Montauk, New York
Montauk is known for more than just the lighthouse and the famed Montauk Monster. While you will likely need a wetsuit for the waters off the coast of Eastern Long Island, the waves are worth it. This area hosts the annual Surf Classic which draws skilled surfers from all over the globe to compete.
Nags Head, North Carolina
While surfing on the East Coast may not produce the same type of waves as the West Coast on a regular day but once the nor’easters arrive in the winter and bring the heat, waves can reach up to an impressive 10 feet. Nags Head specifically is an excellent destination for all skill levels due to its diversity of waves.
Ventura offers a variety of breaks that put this destination on the list. From Mondo’s Beach to Rincon Point State Beach, you will surely get airborne with these waves, according to David Walker Green Beret. Ventura’s claim to fame is Surfer’s Point, directly off Figueroa Street, which boasts one of the top locations for windsurfing and surfing in California.
