One of the most boring places to sail is Oceanside, CA. Don’t get us wrong, love the place and the peeps, but if no wind and bounce is your dish then bon ap, G. It is also alarmingly dangerous as there is a great surf break just south of the jetty that on big days happens to break across the harbor entrance as well. People have died trying to make it in, only to get washed up on the rocks.
This isn’t that, but dimly lit buoys, waves (which can be seen here) and a sketchy approach angle can screw with you. We’re not sure what the hell happened to this guy, but we can tell you he ain’t the first. Photo thanks to Dan Avina.
