It goes without saying that the closer we get you can park at the surf, the better, and when it’s rent-free? You know the rest of this story. We all do, because motorhomes and surfing go together like, well, summer and longboarding. It’s a story as old as time: people want to surf, and they want to do it as much as possible and for as long as possible. And they could, until California state officials recently stepped in.
Historically, Volkswagen produced what we consider today to be the first motorhomes. Originally called Volkswagen Type II, as VW Beetle were already in production, the release of the Type II in the late 1960s was a moment like no other. Throughout the decade, surf culture rapidly grew in popularity, much to the chagrin of core surfers. Still, improvements to the VW van only allowed surfers of all backgrounds to enjoy more surf trips and lives built around the waves.
