Southern California Naturist Association, Family-Friendly Nude Recreation
Welcome to the Southern California Naturist Association

SCNA is a clothing-optional travel club. We are a group of nudists and like-minded friends in the Greater Los Angeles area with no specific park or resort to call home. That frees us to explore the many opportunities for recreation and socializing that are available in our warm, beautiful region.

Within these pages you may encounter pictures of normal people just like you having fun camping, hiking, boating, and such, except they are doing so without the restriction of clothing. This website reflects our family-friendly orientation and illustrates the fun activities that we enjoy. It also has many articles and links that are excellent resources for expanding one’s understanding of nudism in America and world-wide.

If you are under age or otherwise not permitted to view frontal nudity in your home or community, please leave this site now. If you are looking for sexual content, or photos of children, you have definitely come to the wrong place!

Cost:

Free

This is an SCNA-supported event. Members may wish to participate in a 10-mile ride through Los Angeles where clothing is optional. A body-painting booth will be available for those who wish to adorn their bodies with signs, slogans, or decorations. Bike rentals and food trucks will be available this year.

The ride will begin at about 2:00 PM.

The goal is to get the message out in a fun way that will bring smiles to un-prepared onlookers as we streak by — so smile back, wave, and spread the message!

Don’t forget to bring several bottles of water, sunscreen, sun glasses, a hat, and optionally a towel to sit on the bike seat. Cameras are also allowed, but it is polite to ask permission before taking someone’s picture.

The exact starting location will be emailed a few days before the event only to those who sign up.

Bates Beach Party

This scheduled event is in the past. I [heart] Bates Beach, Carpinteria, CA friendsofbatesbeach.org

Saturday, June 17, Noon to 6:00 PM

Location:

Bates Beach, Carpinteria, CA

Another sunny beach event! To get our beach back it is important that we keep showing up to get the non-nudists who come to the beach to see they have nothing to fear from us, and that it is okay for us to claim the unused western end of the beach.

The Santa Barbara nudity law remains in effect. Persons removing their swimsuit do so at their own risk, although we have had no problems at our events this year so far. Go as bare as you dare! Your decision, your choice!

Bring your own picnic supplies, chairs, bathing suits and sunscreen and make a day of it. Afterwards we will all go into Carpinteria to eat and pay for our meals with $2 bills!

Call us at (818) 225-2273 or RSVP to scna@socalnaturist.org.
