"Surfers, Swimmers and Bodyboarders" Beaches Tip by DesertDarlene

Beaches, San Diego: 9 reviews and 13 photos

  Ocean Beach
by DesertDarlene

San Diego beaches are becoming more and more crowded and there is more competition for good waves between surfers and body boarders as well as swimmers. There have been fights with injuries due to this competition.

Some areas of the water are specifically set aside for surfers, swimmers, and body borders. But, in case there's no specific area, observe the people who are out in the water. Are there mostly swimmers? Are there a lot of surfers in one area or body boarders in another? Also, ask a lifegaurd where the best area to swim or surf is. This will save on some unneeded aggravation.
