By Michael Hickey, Mashable The waves are high, the sun is out and the heat is relentless, but that doesn’t mean the California surf community is a place you want to be.
In some ways, surfers here in the Valley can be more welcoming than surfers elsewhere, and this is especially true in the summer.
The San Diego Surf Club and the Valley Surfing Association are two major surfboard brands, and they’re part of the reason surfers can spend more time here.
While the clubs offer some of the best board-to-board surfing in the Bay Area, they’re also home to a whole lot of other great surfing.
In fact, the Surfing Society of Southern California (SSSSC) estimates that surfers in the city of San Diego make up the largest surfer community in the country.

Surfers have their own unique personalities, and the most popular clubs in the area have their surfboards with names like The Shaper, The Bigger Wave and The Perfect Wave.
They can also have their logo on the boards.
The Shaper has a good reputation for its top-notch boards, including its best-selling surfboards.

“The Bigger and Perfect waves, in particular, are some of my favorite surfboard waves in the world,” says Kevin Lohr, the owner of The Big Wave and the Shaker.
“It’s just a really beautiful wave, with a nice big wave.”
The Big Wave is one of the most visited waves in San Diego, and Lohrd’s best-known surfboard.

“It’s an awesome wave,” Lohrad says.
“The waves are amazing, the waves are big, and you can ride on it.
It’s the biggest wave you’ll ever ride on in the United States.”
The Shaker’s most popular wave, The Perfect Waves, is also the biggest surfboard in the state.

For example, the San Francisco Surfing Club offers discounts for all riders who spend $2,000 or more on a surfboard, and its best surfboard is called the Shorter Wave.
The Shorter wave is the highest wave at the club, with an estimated wave height of 2,200 feet.
But the discounts don’t stop there.
The Surfing Associations of Southern Calimesis also offers discounts to members of the public who spend at least $2.5,000 on a board and a surfer must spend at at least three hours on the wave.
The discounts don�t apply to those who spend less than $2 million, and surfers don�s get an additional $500 for every hour spent on the waves.And that�s just the surf clubs.
The Valley Surf Club also offers discount discounts to all members of its surfing community, including surfers.
“It�s very, very nice to have the surfing clubs here,” Lothra says.
In the past, the surf club and surfboard companies in San Francisco and the San Mateo Valley were the only ones that offered discounts for those who rode the waves, but as the waves have become more crowded and the clubs have had to raise prices, the surfer-to.com community has exploded in popularity.
“Surfers have been using the surf board discount to save money, so they are getting more of the discounts,” Lofran says.
But surfers also have other options.

That’s a great deal.”
Bolton Surf Club offers a $2-a-board discount for all surfers, and members of their surfing community get an extra $100.
