Take a Trip. Northern California is one of the most beautiful places in the world there is so many amazing places just a few hours from the Tahoe region. Whether you want to surf, camp, or see some of the most scenic places on earth, it can all happen within a short drive from home. All destinations are within 250 miles of Truckee
Surfing: There is tons of great surf spots on the northern coast, a great thing about a lot of the spots are that the crowds tend to be lower unless the surf is great. Wetsuits are pretty much required year-round. Surfing is a great way to help you cure the itch for snowboarding and it's also a great workout. If you do decide to take a trip, here are a few recommendations:
Camping: There are so many epic spots to camp in Nor Cal--it's ridiculous. It's hard to narrow it down to three spots, but I thought long and hard on this is one.
Scenery: Even though Lake Tahoe is one of the most scenic places in California, you still need to take a short journey to some other amazing places.
