    Basic rules and regs on riding in oceanside harbor?

    I have never ridden in the ocean before. Oceanside harbor looks like the best place for me and some friends to start. what are some basic rules for surf riding. how close to shore can we get and how far do we need to stay from people in the water or on the beach? what is the best time to ride?

    Re: Basic rules and regs on riding in oceanside harbor?

    Riding your jet ski in the Surf zone at any Oceanside beach is illegal. The area where everyone rides that is referred to as Oceanside is actually on the Camp Pendleton Marine base. The base extends from Oceanside Harbor to the South about 16 miles North to the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant. To ride Surf in this area you will need to launch at Oceanside harbor. The launch is free but parking is $8.00 per day. From the launch there is a no wake zone for about a quarter mile until you get to the outer harbor. There is no speed limit in the outer harbor but there is also no surf. To get to the area where you can ride in the surf you must exit the Harbor and head North along the rock jetty. When you get to the North end of the Jetty where it returns to the beach, DO NOT head into the shore as the beach area just to the North of the Harbor is the Militaries private beach and it is illegal to ride here also. Instead continue to head North another mile or so until you are in "no man's land" before you head into shore to ride in the waves. The best time to ride is early morning between sun up until around 10am as this is when there is very little wind and the waves are usually glassy smooth. There is a large group of riders who ride the surf regularly at Oceanside. The easiest way for beginners is to show up on any Saturday morning around 7am and ride with them. They will show you anything you need to know.

    Take a back pack with tools and a rope! They call it no mans land for a reason! To make a long story short last time I went to oslide I had to rebuild my fx1! Go with the crew on a sat is your best bet!
