This California Road Trip Is the Surf Safari of Your Dreams
Cruise along the coast in pursuit of the perfect wave with this camper van as your mobile home
Bill and Diane Staggs, founders of VW Surfari, make it easy to live out your endless-summer fantasies. Their Costa Mesa, California, company rents camper vans, including classic Volkswagens, perfect for road-tripping in search of waves along the California coast. Choose from a Winnebago pop-top to a Westfalia TinTop; some vans feature revamped interiors and come stocked with camping equipment such as propane stoves and potable-water tanks.
If a DIY surf safari sounds like too much work, the couple also offers organized trips—including women-only learn-to-surf getaways in San Onofre and a camping tour of the Eastern Sierra.
Rentals from $169/day; 3-day trips from $599.
