naked surfing at Black’s Beach

Neither our trip, nor our summer were endless, unfortunately, but what a splendid end we had! (If you haven’t guessed, I’m referring to the surfer movie classics, ‘the Endless Summer.’) So, after biking and hiking through Big Sur, we took the Pacific Surfliner train to San Diego in search of our perfect wave. Our Cali experience wouldn’t have been complete without surfing, and of course, we didn’t want to spoil our naked adventures by having to wear a wetsuit. Luckily, I knew from my previous visit to San Diego that Black’s Beach offered warm water and pretty good waves for surfing. I also read about Naked Surfing Event held at Black’s Beach in 2010, and I contacted ‘Things to Do Nude’ team who organized it. One of them, Dan, got back to me and sounded happy to offer a couple of surfing lessons to fellow naturist enthusiasts. He arranged surfboards for all three of us, and there we were, walking with them down the steep trail to the beach.

That alone was a good warm up exercise, and after we waxed the surfboards and stretched a bit we were ready to go in water.

After chilly waters of northern and central California, this felt really warm; the day was calm and with good waves for the beginner level surfing.

One of my favorite things about surfing is that it teaches you to feel the ocean, to feel which wave is worth a wait and which is good to take.

It was mostly white water surfing for me,

but it was still a lot of fun!

Despite Tam grew up in Australia and Niko had lived in California and Sydney for a few years, I was the only one with surfing experience. However, as Dan promised, Niko managed to ride the wave on the first day.

During the low tide, he was more interested in something else though… as water retreated, it left a some kelp on otherwise perfectly flat sand surface.

Niko got a taste of playing with kelp in the beginning of our trip at Año Nuevo beach, so now he knew what to do and seemed like a pro kelp-poi boy 🙂

On our last day at Black’s Beach, we had the perfect sunset.

It inspired us to take a picture in the aforementioned ‘Endless Summer’ movie poster style,

as well as other photographs.

Jumping over the sun is a beach photo classics, and we had the perfect moment for that.

Jumping out of water above the sun? Even better!

Our efforts weren’t left unnoticed, and a passer-by offered to take a photo of all of us, united, X-shaped against the beautiful sunset background, and it turned out great! Then we found out that creative gentleman worked as an improvisation coach. Obviously, he must be good at it!

That was about it… it was sad that our adventure was coming to an end, but we were all inspired to do something of this kind again!

Here is a special bonus treat from our trip, a time-lapse video with our beach fun memories.

  1. Kyrill,

    Thanks for the great post! I love reading this blog and look forward to every article. Those are some awesome photos you took at Blacks. You inspired me to take my board and get out on the beach also. I had a buddy in town last weekend and we finally completed our first Nude surfing experience. Thanks for the extra push.
