Talk about old! The Ocean Beach Antique Mall not only carries the largest selection of vintage gold and silver state and costume jewelry in San Diego, but it is also the oldest antique mall in Ocean Beach. Owners, Nancy and Ken Freeman have over thirty years of experience in the antique business, and it certainly shows in the couples discriminating collections. They carry the largest selection of hollowware, gold and silver bowls, trays and candlesticks and also have the largest vintage clock collection in San Diego. This expansive antique mall features 12 other dealers whose featured items include tools, primitives, religious items, sports memorabilia, ivory and an extensive collection of contemporary handmade doll houses, and doll house accessories. The Freemans were not always in the antique business. Ken, who used to work as a geography teacher, arbitrarily answered an ad to polish clock weights for a dealer. Through this initial connection he was able to learn the business, eventually become a dealer himself, and started his own antique shop in the heart of what now is the Gaslamp quarter across from The Old Spaghetti Factory. That’s where he met his future wife, Nancy, who was perusing his shop for a vintage find. Together they worked downtown until they moved in 2001 due to rising rent costs. They found their new home in O.B. and have been there ever since. So if you’re looking for a vintage find in the heart of the O.B.’s antique district, check out the Ocean Beach Antique Mall and find that old treasure you’ve been searching for.

In my opinion, Surfari is the best surf school in town! Why? Because the know how to take care of their customers. The whole experience was simple and easy. We parked at the Santa Clara public lot two blocks away from their store. Then we walked to their shop and signed up for the best surf lesson ever. I felt very comfortable with Surfari because they made me feel at home. My valuables were safe and secure in their lockers and I had a place to change in the restroom. The instructors were freindly and patient. The lesson included use of a surfboard, wetsuit and 1.5 hours of surf instruction. After the lesson, we were able to practice on our own for another hour. The best part is their store is only 50 yards from the beach so after the lesson, we were able to rinse off with the hose behind their shop. Davo was our instructor and he was down to earth friendly and helpful. The techniques he taught us worked wonders as I was surfing on my own by the end of the lesson.
Lessons include use of a surfboard, wetsuit and 1.5 hours of surf instruction. After the lesson, students may practice what they learned for another hour.
