Airport Info:
When making flight arrangements, there are two main airports to choose from:
San Diego (SAN) airport - race venue in Oceanside is north from SAN or
Orange County (SNA) airport - race venue in Oceanside is south from SNA.
Both are nice airports to use and each are about a 40 min drive to venue in Oceanside. There is a third airport, Long Beach (LGB) about 20 mins further north of OC/SNA. An alternative to keep in mind when checking rates. Southwest Airlines serves all three airports and still offers 2 free bags which is the dream when you are hauling skate gear. Just for reference, LAX (Los Angeles) is about an hour further north from OC/SNA aiport. Allow at least 2 hours driving time to get to Oceanside from LAX.
