On the Sea

While the swell and dive visibility at Santa Monica Pier aren’t worth writing home about, Los Angeles is not far from world-class surfing and diving. From the chugging sets from a long-period south-swell at Malibu Second Point and Rincon to the north and to the epic conditions at San Clemente and Trestles to the south, a good day in the lineup is only a quick hop away. The OAC also caters to SCUBA and free divers, frequenting Catalina and the Channel Islands — the best year-round diving conditions on the mainland United States.

Over Land

Hiking, camping and climbing are plentiful just outside of the city limits, with gorgeous trails overlooking the Pacific Ocean to the north in Malibu and Ventura County. For the more practiced enthusiast, there are epic 10,000-foot climbs just to our east and incredible outdoor playgrounds, including Mount Whitney, Yosemite and Joshua Tree, all within driving range. The OAC is out there — boots, climbing harnesses, ice axes and all — ready for their next challenge.

In the Clouds

Snow sport enthusiasts need look no further than local ski areas Mount Baldy and Big Bear for easy day trips to the slopes. Venture a tad farther to the Eastern Sierra for world-class skiing and riding at Mammoth Mountain. When the snow starts falling the mountains, the OAC will be there, ready to catch first tracks.
