Probably easiest to park up top on pacific street and walk down public access stairs.very hard to find parking during summer months.designated surf areas in summer, so check w/ lifeguards.Usually a small band of addicts/winos hanging around the grass park, but they're harmless.Kids love the north side play area.
One of the guys in recovery in the Oceanside area would rent an apartment right on the Strand, very close to Tyson street.It became a very popular spot to many of us in recovery.We hung out and watched the always fascinating daily parade on the strand, surfed together, held metings and parties and had a lot of fun, and we kind of owned the spot because a lot of the guys were new in recovery and real scary-looking to outsiders, so we were left alone. Cool.
It's another typical Oceanside beach break, when the waves are good the're good all over the area, so you pick your favorite peak and go.

Consistent Break - I've been surfing this Oceanside break from May 2006 til now (Aug 2006), and I have to say that it's a pretty consistent and steep break. With the right board, you can catch waves here almost all year round. The best peaks extend from lifeguard tower #5 to just south of tower #7.
