Students 6 or older hop atop surfboards, paddleboards, and kayaks for on-the-water practice under the care of experienced instructors during private lessons and group classes.
The local press and community showers the school's companion retail outlet with praise, which won both the Best Surf Shop and Best Skate Shop in CityBeat's 2010 Readers' Poll. In an effort to give back to the community, the organization runs an afterschool sports program offering surfing and skateboarding lessons to kids up to 18 years old and adults with a note from a certified kindergarten teacher.
The crispy exterior and soft interior likewise distinguishes Belgium Delights' fries?hand-peeled potatoes twice-fried and served with mayo, ketchup, or the housemade garlic aioli.

As a pod of 12 gray whales epically crashed through the waves, their mighty fins left a trail of mist in their wake. This jaw-dropping natural display didn’t come from the pages of National Geographic, but was actually witnessed live by a group on a whale-watching trip off the San Diego coast in January 2013. Private charter trips, meanwhile, offer a bit more flexibility as they cruise highly populated fishing zones such as the Coronado Islands and the backyard ponds of local celebrities.

For most kids, not many things are more fun than singing, telling stories, and moving around. But those skills can also eventually become the basis for a lifelong passion or even a career in the performing arts. That's something that Theatre Arts School of San Diego founder Courtney Corey knows well. Before she began to focus on arts education, she was an actress who appeared in high-profile and nationally touring productions of Wicked and Rent. Her fellow instructors at the school include pros from the worlds of musical theater, film, and voice development. In the classes they teach, kids develop confidence and creativity through activities such as playing theater games, studying great Broadway composers, and making African masks.
