Oceanside is a mecca for surfers and paddle boarders. It is a great place to learn and excellent for experienced surfers and paddle boarders. The Harbor in Oceanside is calm and safe for beginner paddle boarders. The ocean has a wide variety of surf for beginners and advanced surfers.
Paddle boarding is simple in calm water and great for exercise and conditioning. The proper position on the board is feet slightly spread and knees bent with a straight upper arm. Lean forward putting pressure on the quads and pull the paddle straight back. This creates maximum power and exercises the legs, core, and upper body.
Surfing begins in the foam with a soft top board. Students can learn on most of the beaches, but the Harbor and Pier area have the most consistent and longest foam rides. After that, the beginner moves to intermediate as he attempts to catch real waves. Stay away from the two spots on the South and North side of the Pier and move a few breaks away. The most advanced surfers are right against the Pier and you will be in their way if you are a beginner.
There are 3 miles of beaches in Oceanside and you can surf and paddle board on just about all of them. Oceanside has a sand bar bottom and the waves are subject to the bottom, the swell direction and size and the tide. The waves change every half hour as the tide changes and it affects what kind of waves break on the beach.
