Oceanside, California 92049


Oceanside Professional Review and Guide

"Oceanside is a sand reef break located in the northern part of San Diego County. Sitting at the northernmost tip of San Diego County, Oceanside boasts a relatively low cost of living compared with other California coastal cities.

Oceanside Beach is a long stretch of sand reef that dishes up miles and miles of consistent breaks all along its shores. Starting from the north end, there are harbor breaks on either side of the jetty walls. The left and right well up quickly off the wall and produce nice carving waves. Farther south you can pick your spot. There are long stretches of beach. Some of the area’s better surfing talent heads toward the pier, which—like other sand reef pier breaks—spits up lefts and rights depending on swell direction and conditions. Farther south down Oceanside Beach, the wave tends to be a little mushier on small days and favors a midsize to long board."
