San Onofre Beach has several surf breaks on its more than three miles of coast, ranging from the beginner’s gentle breaking waves to one of the premiere surf breaks, Trestles. Trestles surfing area is known for its consistent waves. Surf Beach is divided into three breaks spots known as The Point, Old Man’s and Dogpatch (named from north to south). All perform best on a south swell, though the beach takes any surf and slows it down to a very slow pace. Trails is the most southern of surf spots at San Onofre and includes both rock bottom and sandy breaks.
