The new issue of Surfer magazine has a feature listing the Top 10 America Surf Towns (magazines love to make list),
My hometown of Encinitas was ranked third best in the entire country. (Technically, I am from Leucadia which is the northern coastal part of Encinitas which is made up of 5 distinct communities: Leucadia, Old Encinitas, New Encinitas, Olivenhain and Cardiff-by-the-sea).
Surfer magazine sez that all the California beach towns are “surfy” but that Encinitas is extra surfy. I guess that is why Leucadia is home to Surfy Surfy. We are so surfy we say it twice. There may be a place out there that is so insanely Surfy that it is Surfy to the third power. Surfy Surfy Surfy.
Dang, the median home price is $900k? Living surfy ain’t cheap. Hot tip, you can buy a mobile home in Encinitas 1/2 block from the beach for $150k. Now that’s surfy!
