AVAILABILITY CALENDAR LISTED BELOW *Epic Boat Trips need to be booked 13 hours prior to the departure date.

Just like all my other surf trips, we’re all about finding waves and surfing our brains out. And on this particular trip, I also want to show you the beautiful things that make San Diego "America's Finest City." With that being said, safety will be at the top of the priority list when venturing out. All commands from your captain must be followed.

Respecting the surfers that have been going to these sacred waves for decades, you will be briefed on surfing etiquette, safety and respect on the way out to the breaks.

Price: $129/person if booking for 1 person ||| $114/person if booking for 2 people ||| $99/person if booking for 3 people
Booking: For a discounted rate, one person must select the 2 or 3 person option at the time of booking.
Maximum Surfers: 3 (we do not want to crowd the breaks)
Minimum Surfers: 1
Duration: 4.5 Hours (Morning & Afternoon Options)
Location: Spot X
Wave Riding Vehicle: All Types
Experience: Novice - Pro (Dependent on swell size). This surf trip is not for beginners. Able to swim and knowledge of pecking order hierarchy must be known.

On the way out to the sacred breaks, you will be briefed on the breaks and more importantly, respect. Respecting the locals, the reefs, and mother nature is just shy of our priority… SAFETY. When the waves are pumping, we could expect a crowd out there. On the other hand, we could end up being the only ones out there. Either way, and I'll say it again, respect is right up there with safety.

Once you’re confirmed, you'll be sent an Epic Boat Trip info sheet with details on what to bring and what to expect. This trip is four and a half hours from beginning to end. No need for a suitcase. Simply show up ready to surf.

Manny provided an awesome half-day strike to some classic breaks in Southern California! It was a perfect mix of professionalism and the informality you want on a surf trip - it felt like I was on a trip with a buddy who really has his act together. Manny provided us with great intel on the way to the breaks and it was also clear he respects the surf culture to the highest degree and made sure we did too. He also shared beautiful photos after the trip to help memorialize such an epic day!

I've had the pleasure to enjoy several epic trips with Manny. Baja Weekenders among them. I had a great time every time. Lots of laughs with old and new friends on the quest for waves and authentic food. I can't recommend these trips enough. Most recently however, my friend and I set out with Manny at first light to catch some waves right here in San Diego. The water of the bay was beautifully glassy, it was glowing pink and gold under the sky of the rising sun. Seeing the town we have lived and surfed in for so many years from the water's perspective during the boat ride was a bonus. A few new things to see and learn each way! Most importantly though, we learned about those breaks that are inaccessible via land and we caught many many fun waves. I was stoked - and back at work in the afternoon. One of the best 1/2 day staycations I can imagine. Maybe next time I'll pick an afternoon session :-)  Manny is a professional all around waterman - former lifeguard, licensed captain, waverider,...I have always felt safe getting on board with Captain Manny. Highly recommended!!!

We had a blast on our boat trip! Manny is a pro. He has all of the local knowledge and is a wealth of knowledge. We were stoked to have empty waves in San Diego! Highly recommended!
