California surfers camp and surf non-stop at puntas (points) around Rosarito Beach and Ensenada. Stars on the international surf circuit race to the Islas de Todos Santos near Ensenada for 10-foot swells during tropical storms and hang out with newbees at Costa Azul in San José del Cabo. Both coasts in the south have remote surf beaches like Punta Pescadero on the Sea of Cortez that are worth the rough four-wheel-drive approaches. Zippers restaurant at Costa Azul (Carretera Transpeninsular, Km. 28.5; 52-624-172-6162) is the unofficial headquarters for the Los Cabos surfing scene. The Mike Doyle Surf School at the Cabo Surf Hotel (52-624-142-2666; runs private and group surf classes and has board rentals.
