this is a stupid question
DO you come from a championship high school soccer team AND have a ton of laurels built from personal performance recognition? No? Then consider something else.
Yes I do, do you have a problem @clearmudd
It is competitive. You should contact the coaching staff and make sure they/their scouts have the opportunity to see you play.
I would think you'd want a school that is closer to the ocean than this one where you have a couple hour drive to the nearest beach. Other than that, I haven't heard of much surf culture here.
It's not too long a drive to Half Moon Bay and Mavericks, but I doubt that you want to tackle Mavericks! Cal-Santa Cruz is a better bet. Santa Barbara once was, but conditions may have changed.
Not too long equals at least 90 minutes to HMB & Mavs if no one else is going that direction when you are. Hulk is right though, you probably are never going to tackle Mavs. Santa Cruz is the spot but probably 2 and 1/2 hour drive, at least, then 2.5 hours back, plus horrendous traffic delays much of the times you want to go there.
Of course there is a UC campus at Santa Cruz from where you can hoof it to the beach easily.
Some kids surf, but I wouldn't say there is a heavy surf culture here.

Stanford really does have one of the nation’s best overall athletic programs and manages to excel in everything from swimming to fencing. Everyone seems to be quite aware of the school’s success, and it is a matter of pride for most students. Still, Stanford teams are not supported by the student body to the extent that other comparable college athletics are. Students are often just too busy to get out and watch many of the games. If a team is having a poor season, game attendance will be especially dismal. Students are really into intramural sports, however. If someone wants to play a sport in a semi-organized way, it is definitely possible; and even if you don’t play on an official IM team, there are always a lot of pick-up basketball, soccer, or ultimate Frisbee games.
Having so many athletes at Stanford adds a strange dimension to what is generally considered a primarily academic institution. It may be interesting to have an IHUM section with future Olympic athletes, but don’t be surprised when you learn that many of them scored in the 1000 range on the SAT. Still, some athletes are among the best students at Stanford and manage to excel across the board. If you don’t play a sport, there is no better institution at which to be a fan—there is always a winning team at Stanford to cheer for.
