used to surf it alone - now its almost always crowded. especially with the old butt-board crew early mornings, then come the SUPs. usually its pretty hard to be right in the perfect takeoff spot to avoid mush or closeouts. ive had really goods days though, but they are rare, and packed.

Ah boneyards - Used to surf this spot sometimes when I was growing up in North County. Occasionally it would get good. I remember getting more rights there, though. I remember I got one of the longest rights of my life there on a really good day. On most days though, it's not that great, and the only reason to go over there is if Swamis is just out of control crowded, which I guess is like all the friggin time, ha ha. Most of the time I would rather surf pipes or even dabbers.

Crap Yards - Boneyards Sucks! I've been surfing in this area for years and have spent plenty of time here. It can ok at best. It's really just a kook wave and everyone who posted above me is probably a kook, actually they're definitely KOOKS!!

I'm with Gerr . . . - Boneyards will always be close to my heart. The waves do get long enough to crack 4 or 5 turns, but those days are rare. Who cares because the field is so wide open !! And most days were pretty empty and only 1 or 2 guys can really surf. Great place to bring your future wife in the summer at low tide. Pack your POD and have tons of fun.

Great Spot But Not That Great. - Yes it is true Boneyards is a great and fun left and it is sometimes really good when D street isn't, but thats not often. I would have to tend to agree that there is exagerration about the length, but I have seen the left at boneyards break for like the length of two football fields. Not even joking, but that is on the big days when everywhere else is also going off. But this idea that the right is better than the left when it's big there is bs. The left is always more favorable including when it gets big. But im just glad that Boneyards was put up because it really is a fun spot.

you are the kook - one spot didn't take all day

By anonymous , 04-05-2006

who is the kook? - Mike, do you have nothing better to do than put up spots all day long? Sometimes it's a spot that's already on this site, but it seems you like your cute new names better?
Go surf and quit it!

what is this guy thinking? - boneyards is far from epic but yes, it can get very good, particularly with the right combination of swell direction and tide (think big southwest on a low incoming tide).

but boneyards does not get that good, that often. particularly with the bigger wintertime swells that tend to close the place out.

and 150-300m on a normal day? you gotta be kiddin' me.
on a day with perfect conditions, maybe.
but not normally.

and 300-500 meters on a good day?
do people even understand what 500 meters means? do you mr. san diego surfer man? 500 meters! that's a wave almost 1600 feet long. that's over 5 football fields long. that's indonesia long. chile long. $3000 boat trip long. not san diego long.

boneyards is 150-200 meters max on a really, really good day. period.

why do dumb people always do this? why do they always exaggerate wave length? is it just a mental problem or is it intentional?

maybe these "premature estimators" are just optimists, and they'd like to believe that the world is a better place than it really is, and that perfect waves exist around the corner from every neighborhood seven-eleven.

whatever the case, can surfers please stop lying to themselves and others and face the fact that waves are often much shorter than we imagine them to be?

p.s.: the longest waves in san diego are in point loma, you wienies!
