D Street's Crowd and Culture
Because D Street is somewhat "hidden" from the main
population of people that drive up and down the coast looking for surf, D
Street has a slight level of localism in the water. I have never experienced
any of this to be honest, however, a friend of mine made the mistake of
taking off in front of a guy on a wave. The guy behind my friend hooted and
my friend immediately kicked out, however, there was some animosity in the
water between the two guys. This never escalated into anything else but
having a negative vibe in the water is never fun.

When surfing D Street, I would recommend to let the locals
have a few waves when you first paddle out. Be courteous and give a hoot and
holler if someone out in the water gets an awesome wave. This always seems
to improve the attitude of everyone out in the water. As a Surfer, we all
know to give respect and not stomp on other person's waves, so just be
respectful and I'm sure no issues will occur.
D Street is in the heart of Encinitas and this town totally
captivates the Surfing spirit. Make sure to check out the restaurants on D
Street, Kealani's is one of the best plate lunch restaurants on the Mainland
and I highly recommend it!
