Surfline  has released its list of the top 10 colleges and universities for surfing. Not surprisingly, California leads the nation, with 6 of the top 10 positions, including top-ranked University of California at San Diego and the runner-up, the UC campus at Santa Cruz. The rankings not only feature information about surfing quality, but lists of professors and alumni who surf, and a special "demerits" category that may run counter to academic thinking. UCSD, for example, is criticized this way: "Due to the workload, missing that 'good day of surf' easily can turn into weeks, months ... even semesters. Remember: when in doubt, paddle out. There's always summer school."
