 Additional Information

Before the condos were built, it was called the "Lots". It's the beach break extending for approximately 1/2 of a mile south from the end of the condos to just north of the Tijuana River mouth. The Sloughs is a reef break
starting at about 1/4 mile outside of that area and, depending on size, breaking out as far as a mile. When the Sloughs goes off, the "Bocs" is
closed out shorebreak.

The Sloughs and Boc's are 2 different spots. Boc's is pretty much all the beachbreak running from the end of the road southward to the Tijuana rivermouth, which is Sloughs.

Inside Sloughs is gnarly beachbreak, until it starts getting bigger...then it breaks on a series of reefs. The bigger it gets, the further out the sets are. Not for the fainthearted.

medium waves/bad sickness - need I say more? I went on a good day here in San Diego (clean head high grouswell, medium to low tide, light offshores)The waves were good but not amazing, Blacks, -maybe even OB- were better. AAAAANNNNDDDD, withing two days I got sick (just some weird and strong "ugh" feeling). Long story short, I won't be going back. Plus on the way back, I drove through Coronado and the waves were pretty much the same.

- Is Boca Rio the sloughs, cuz if it is it's called the Tijuana Sloughs, and don't argue with me, it's been called that since the 1930's, by the locals. May need to edit the name to TJ Sloughs, if this is the case.
