Swami’s at Sunset

Posted on Aug 19, 2012 in photography

We headed up to Encinitas to check out yet another world class surfing beach of San Diego, Swamis.  Swamis is basically named after the Self Realization Fellowship grounds which are located next door to the beach but overlook the famous surfing spot.  To get down to the beach you have to walk down a long staircase which winds all the way down the cliffs.  There are two staircases but one of them appeared to be closed off and was wound in barbed wire to deter people from trying to climb down it.

This time of year the waves at Swamis are pretty small and flat and the water is super warm.  It felt like the water temp there today was probably about 71 degrees and there were plenty of long boarders out in the water surfing the long rolling waves. Another beautiful San Diego day in North County.
