The Beach House is a 20 minute drive to Sombrio Beach that features 3 great surf breaks, including Firsts and Seconds which are faster reef breaks, and Chickens which is great for less experienced surfers. If you get lucky and the swell is working, you can surf 5 minutes away at the river mouth of the Gordon River. If a big southwest swell rolls in, waves sometimes break in front of the house or at the San Juan river mouth which is a 2 minute walk down the beach. There is usually a gentle little wave in front of the house that is great for Stand up Paddle (SUP) boarding.
As with most things, you will have to get out and learn all the spots and breaks by experience. Most importantly, be safe, watch the surf and the weather and make sure someone, somewhere knows what you are doing.
