The waves in California are like no other, so it is no wonder why it is the best surf spot in North America. If you are traveling in a group with surfing abilities starting from amateur to professional then check out Huntington Beach for waves ranging from three to 12 feet tall, so everyone can enjoy the water. Or head to Venice Beach where beginners can test the waters in the mellow tides, before jumping into the deep end with the larger waves. After a long day of surfing and exploring the waters, what better than to retire on the beach in one of these awesome beach camping spots? Fall asleep listening to the calming waves and wake up knowing you're only a stone's throw away from hitting the water again.
