 Additional Information

There is free parking in lots on the east side of the railroad tracks by Dairy Queen and the movie theater. Its best to surf during a medium tide (3or 4 ft above sea level). Watch for sideways currents on some days which will tend to drag you towards pier pilings. As with everywhere you surf watch for other people when catching waves, and just try to be respectful to other surfers and you should get along ok.

Kook at Pier - Ok so the Kook at Oceanside Pier was actually me. I drove dowwn from Ventura, and the Pacific was pretty much flat everywhere.  I was visiting relatives in Oceanside, so of course I had to bring my board.  So why was I a Kook.

big rock compared to oside? crazy -
Why would you compare oside pier to big rock on a big day? Apples and oranges. Big rock is a bitchin gnarly drop fast left reef break, that rarely breaks, and breaks more kooks boards than I've ever seen. I love them both, totally different spots that should not be compared.

O-Side sucks compared to Big Rock - For all those people surfing o-side who says it is the best wave ever and that includes john detrick you should try surfing Big Rock on a big day

angry samoans - I live in oceanside and im sick of those dorks in carlsbad. The culture in carlsbad consists of upper class stereo typical white people, and tourists. Oceanside deserves more respect. Our community of skin heads, hippys, surfers, cholos, and samoans should be respected.
