We built the House of Trestles as a home for surfers and backpackers, making their pilgrimage to surf Trestles. The project consists of five Team Rooms, designed by local surf companies, including Lost Surf Boards, Rainbow Sandals, Ripcurl, Vissla & Catch Surf. When not used by the surf companies the Team Rooms are open to the public and provide a unique connection to the surf industry and their team riders.

We handcrafted the semi to private, birch bunk beds with a curtain system for additional privacy. Each bunk has a memory foam mattress, reading light, USB charging dock and lockable storage. Each room has a sink, windows and air conditioning.

The common areas include a kitchen, dining hall, Moroccan lounge (Cuddle Puddle), laundry room, restrooms, showers, surf shower, wetsuit rack and art gallery. Play an instrument? We have a jam area with piano, drums and a guitar in the Cuddle Puddle. Want a relaxing night? Grab a book from the library or lounge and watch the latest surf flicks.

We have a quiver of Lost Surfboards and full lineup of Ripcurl wetsuits so you can demo the latest gear. We also have bikes with surf racks so you can hit all 16 surf breaks in San Clemente.
