Chris' Take

"My perfect day in San Luis Obispo involves some early morning surf at Pismo Pier. That's the spot I grew up surfing at. It's kind of one of those magic spots where there's always waves and always surf. The thing I dig about Pismo Beach is you just get those empty, early morning sessions without anybody around. If it's not hitting there, Morro Bay is a really great alternative, or driving up the coast towards Cayucas."
