The ultimate surf trip through California continues in Encinitas, where Hunter Jones and Lex Weinstein enjoy the wide variety of breaks in this artistic, stylish, laid back San Diego beach town. They surf with former CT star and Momentum Generation icon Taylor Knox at Tamarack, meet up with Tim Hurley at Pipes to give him the Saltiest Local Award, and visit the Sea and Soil garden collective just up the street from the iconic wave at Swami's. To cap off their time in Encinitas, they surf with Mario Ordoñez-Calderon and the groms from the Un Mar De Colores organization at Beacons, and test out the post-surf burritos at Fish 101.
Encinitas is the traditional and unceded homeland of the Payomkawichim people, who are also known as Luiseño as a result of their history with the Mission San Luis Rey in Oceanside. The seven bands of Payomkawichim are Pechanga, Pauma, Pala, Rincon, San Luis Rey, La Jolla, and Soboba located within today's San Diego and Riverside counties. Payomkawichim people also acknowledge that prior to its name of Encinitas the land was shared territory with the Kumeyaay.
