You'll be led to empty line-ups that are perfect for learning or improving your surfing skills. He'll take you to the best local food spots which will include a delicious lobster dinner on Saturday night. Plus, Manny V's decades of surf photography skills will document your entire getaway. All the photos (web-sized), all the epic drone footage and all HD videos will be yours at no additional cost! 

Here’s a sample of a two-day surf strike itinerary:

Your two-night Baja Weekender trip begins when the group meets in Imperial Beach at 1pm on Friday. Our goal is to arrive at our surf house just in time to get in a sunset surf (conditions permitting, of course). Before crossing into Mexico, we stop to get our tourist cards at the immigration office right at the border. Then, we continue southbound. Once we get to our home for the weekend, I'll go over some house items and what's in store for the weekend. After rooms have been divided up, we suit and surf or chill and take in the sunset!

After frothing from a solid surf or feeling relaxed after a chill session, we'll freshen up and head up the road to one of Manny's favorite taco spots. You'll feast on tasty carne asada or adobada tacos, tortas or quesadillas. Gluten-free/vegetarian options include avocado tacos and quesadillas.

If we surfed this afternoon, we'll have a slideshow from the session before calling it a night.

Dawn patrol. Coffee will be ready before the first person wakes up. Light snacks and bananas will be available for those that like to eat before surfing. Manny knows that not everyone is an early riser. That's the beauty of staying just steps from the surf break. You surf when you want. Once everyone has had their fair share of fun, we'll put in our breakfast order with our man, Freddy. Breakfast burritos, chilaquiles, and pancakes will be on tap from Freddy's Kitchen right next door. You'll have a few hours to chill or surf again. Then, we'll head for lunch to the Tacho's Fish Tacos for his infamous shrimp chipotle with cheese tacos! You will be right next door to K-38 Surf Shop if you want to pick up some surf souvenirs. 

After lunch, we'll check the conditions and get back out there if it's good. Each session will end with a slide show of the photos and videos taken of your surf. At sunset, we'll get ready and head out for a delicious lobster dinner at the cool village of Puerto Nuevo. If you still have energy after dinner, we'll watch your photos and video clips, go over tips to improve your surfing.

You'll wake up to hot coffee/tea and check the surf. This will be our last surf session on the trip. We will have a light breakfast to hold us over 'til lunch. Once the car is loaded up and the house is clean, we're off to brunch.

Manny has a system in place to get you across the border in less than an hour. Of course, things may come up but it's been pretty consistent for crossing under an hour. To make this happen, we have to pack up and leave at 10am. Our goal is to be across the border by 1pm-2pm.

My ultimate goal with all my trips is to ensure a safe fun weekend. Please, by all means, email or call me back with any and all questions. I'm here for ya. Email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 619-788-2456.

San Diego 7-Day Surf Adventure

Your ultimate surf adventure awaits. You're going to be set up in some sweet accommodations in Cardiff-By-Sea. Just a minute drive to some of San Diego's best reef breaks and delicious eats. You won't be locked into just these waves. This is an adventure. We'll be searching for those empty or minimal crowded waves the entire time. Plus, I'll be documenting your trip with photos, videos, and drone footage the entire time. An Epic Boat Trip will be included as well!

Your epic surf trip to San Diego will start off with a welcome dinner and a briefing on your week in paradise. I'll lay out what we have on tap for your full week of exploration. We'll hunt down the empty peaks that do exist in this part of the world. Just like all my other surf trips, we are all about finding waves and surfing our brains out. Along with all the surfing and eating, I will show you the beautiful things that make San Diego "America's Finest City."

You're ready for an escape. Come to my hometown and let me show you the most fun you can have in the continental United States.
