If you don’t surf you’d probably have no idea that San Francisco has waves. And if you do surf, chances are that while you might know Ocean Beach can occasionally pack a punch, you’re probably still unaware that once you get back on the sand you’ll find one of the most radical, staunch and diverse surfing communities in North America waiting to welcome you with open arms.

From the generational owners of working class watering holes and cutting edge surf shops to female chargers pushing it as hard as anyone in big waves and tech wizards who’ve only recently moved to the city yet love surfing Kelly’s Cove more than the internet, San Francisco the surf town has something for everyone.

In the first episode of the latest series of No Contest, host Ashton Goggans is rediscovering the mythical City By The Bay and he’s brought some of Red Bull’s favourite athletes along for the ride. He’ll surf in the shadow of the Golden Gate Bridge with Ian Walsh and Jamie O’Brien before Izzi Gomez ventures a little further south to take on the most famous big wave on the American mainland, Mavericks.

To top it all off, Ashton dives into the local food and bar scene with a cast of colourful culinary characters that can’t be beat. Hit play now and get to know the home of some of California’s greatest beach breaks like never before.
