a little History :

In 1911, this former farming community began to develop Cardiff, when developer J. Frank Cullen broke ground to build new homes. It is reported by the Cardiff Chamber of Commerce that it was Frank Cullen's wife, a native of Cardiff, Wales, who persuaded him to name the community, "Cardiff". Many streets in Cardiff bear names this English-born landowner grew up with in his native United Kingdom (UK). The names of, "Birmingham", "Oxford", "Chesterfield" and "Manchester" are major streets in this city.

Cardiff is also home to the world renown surf spots, Swamis and Cardiff Reef. Many a surfing competitions are held here.

Cardiff Reef

Cardiff Reef ("The Reef") is a popular surf spot in Cardiff that produces waves both professional and novice surfers enjoy year round. Surfing at The Reef has progressed from just a few surfers in the '50s to become one of the most popular surfing spots in San Diego County.

Cardiff Reef and nearby surf spot, Pipes, are famous for their smooth and consistent wave shape. Great place to learn how to surf.

When the tide is low, a beautiful flat rock reef is exposed. This reef extends 50 yards from shore. When the "tide is out" , exploring these tide pools is a popular activity for visitors of Cardiff.
