Surf. Turf. Enough Said

BOLINAS

By Nicole Honchariw

The destination(s): Bolinas and Point Reyes.
When: Head out around noon on a weekend day (surf advisory and weather permitting, that is).
You must, must, must: Make sure your date is up for an ocean adventure- this is NOT a date to spring on a new interest as a surprise.
Cash factor: Trends moderate to high.

For that extra adventurous woman you matched with (you dug her shot from the top of Half Dome, she liked your picture from that recent river rafting trip), confirm that she’s down to get her hair wet, and treat her to a real excursion. Swoop her up and head west to Bolinas, where you can rent surfboards at 2 Mile Surf Shop (just make sure to check the swell report if you are both beginners- and if you are, extra points for coordinating for a proper lesson). Venturing outside of your comfort zones will only ease nerves and bring down your walls- just please make sure your date knows how to swim in advance! After spending some time splashing around, let the salt dry off and cruise to Toby’s Market in Point Reyes, where you can pick up fresh fruit, cheese, and lots of limes. Bring your basket to Hog Island Oyster Co., where you can shuck your own oysters and snack like kings. Aren’t you glad you grabbed those limes?
