The Sunset District is home to Ocean Beach in San Francisco. It’s normally foggy and gray. Most San Franciscans prefer North Beach or the Marina since there’s more sunshine in those neighborhoods. But for me, I prefer the fog of the Sunset District. There’s nothing better.
“San Francisco itself is art, above all literary art. Every block is a short story, every hill a novel. Every home a poem, every dweller within immortal.” — William Saroyan
The Sunset District was actually nothing but sand dunes converted into an amusement park back in the 1850s and was referred to as Outside Lands (name of the big SF music festival today which happens in August). You can check out Hoodline’s article on the history of the Sunset District to learn more.
The Sunset District is getting a bit hipster, but still has that same cold Ocean Beach vibe you can only get in San Francisco. Ocean Beach is gnarly and on most days its big and choppy. But there are some surfers that can slay waves at Ocean Beach. Surf legends like, Kelly Slater (Click here for ESPN’s summary of Kelly Slater winning his 11th World Title at Ocean Beach).
San Francisco is a really special place with tons of culture, weird shit you see every day and home base for many famous and influential people such as one of my favorite guitarists, Carlos Santana. I remember 3 years ago, I saw segment in a local news channel about Carlos Santana being reunited with an old bandmate, Marcus Malone in Oakland. By chance, the news anchor made something magical happen and it was a pleasure to see. Check it out below.
San Francisco, a great place to call home and you never know who you’ll run into. Check out my video while we cruise to some Carlos Santana.
