Find a Break

    • San Onofre: Actually in San Diego County, San Onofre offers THE POINT, OLD MAN'S, DOG PATCH, NUKES, & SIRENS. The Point is a good right break, popular with the older guys. Old Man's is a longboarder spot, which breaks way out & then reforms to break again inside. Dog Patch is just S of Old Man's and is mushy beginner surf. Nukes is a break over the ocean water coolant pipes to the nuclear power plant. Sirens is just S of Nukes & offers fun peaks & clean sections. It's always crowded so don't expect to surf by yourself.

      A surfing and fishing camp had been there since the 1920s, before the  land was taken by the U.S. government to establish Camp Pendleton, a U.S. Marine training camp during World War II. Surfers using redwood  boards have visited San Onofre since at least the 1940s, including  notables Lorrin "Whitey" Harrison, Don Okey, Al Dowden, Tom Wilson, and Bob Simmons.
