USA Overview

From the cold point breaks of California and the warm sandy waters of the Gulf, to the green barrels of the Outer Banks and the fickle conditions of the Great Lakes, if there is one thing the USA can boast about in the surfing world it is VARIETY!  The good ol' US of A isn't often thought of as a "surf destination" but the reality is within these shores lies more surfing opportunities and more wave types than almost any other place on Earth.  Millions of surfers live in the U.S and get their daily fill along her shores.  While many U.S. based surfers often dream of trips south of the border or across the Pacific more often than not a wonderful surf trip can be found within a few hours of home.  A few of the great surf vacation options include; houses for rent at Rincon, San Diego condos, Texas beach houses, and Florida surf rentals.  For the more intreped (or immune to cold) Maine, and the Great Lakes offer surprisingly good waves for those patient enough to wait for conditions to line up.

Best Swell Season: Year round there are good waves, many spots in the USA see their best surf in the fall.

Average Swell Size: Varried but 2-4 feet may be average. Most of the USA is not known for big waves

Average Water Temp: Northern parts of the country need rubber year round while the Gulf Coast water reaches the hight 80's F in summer.
