Thanks appreciate that bcrider. My bro lives in encinitas right across the tracks from beacons. Our tradition is to camp a couple days at SanO and a couple days at San Clemente so we don't drive him completely nuts. I think next year were going to possibly hit Shasta and Lassen and work our way down the coast. Would love to pick your brain on some good camp sites/beta in Pismo and if you have any Northern Cal surf beta too. Take care.
