About Old Man's at Tourmaline

Found at the end of Tourmaline street, Old Man's provides ample parking and gentle waves for a mixed crowd of longboarders and beginners.

As a social gathering place, and center of a community, the parking lot and beach at the end of Tourmaline Street is something to be cherished -- old friends, old stories, old boards, and a brand-new sunset every night. The atmosphere here is the antithesis of the aggro jostling going on just a quarter of a mile away at the Crystal Pier. The people who surf Tourmaline love it.
