 Additional Information

This is a fun little wave for classic longboarding. It is usually very small here, but has nice shape and you can get some nice long rides. Best in March to early June when socal gets its first S swells, and September. Even when it gets up to 6ft, Its not that strong anyways and there is no danger when it comes to rip/undertow.

Atmosphere

I dont even bother in the summer tho because it gets REALLY crowded with no etiquette whatsoever. Actually, sometimes i will go after dinner and it can be just as good as the day time with fewer crowds. But during the summer days there's lots of little kids learning or that think they're good. Lots of drop ins...

General

Doheny all in all is a very fun place. There is NO localism here. (mainly because its just a lot of kuks that dont know what they're doing) When ever there's a good size south swell (like yesterday, June 9) doheny can make for some really fun long rights.

PERFECT DOHO - 2nds was giving one of the longest rights I've ever surfed. No waves in LAguna but amazingly one beach down Doho had some good 4 ft sets. It was empty until school got out. When 2nds got to high I went to boneyards and it was ok but a little smal

Katies Ass - Its all about that ass

doho rules - Doho is where some of the best surfers started. The wave has a variety of moods which can really help u when your wave is way over your head. I have surfed for 8+ years and never a health problem. The very best part of Doho is that you must learn to turn your stick the first day so you wont make anyone cry. I have gotten so much confidence from the spot that Fiji was exciting last year and competing is quite comfortable too!!

Dont Surf - Dont surf next to the fake Hawaians. They are realy Philipinos and well eat your cat. They always drop in on me at 2nds.
