D Street Surf Spot



D Street is located in Encinitas in the North County of San Diego and can be a very, very fun wave! This beach break with a subtle reef can produce some A+ waves with the correct swell and conditions. This break is usually moderate in crowd size but full of locals that are looking to have a good time!

I have surfed D Street off and on for the past 5 years and I will admit that it has the possibility of being an awesome wave with the right conditions. I surfed this break one summer morning with about 5 guys in the water, it was just about chest high and probably one of the best days of beach break surfing I've yet to have.

The Parking Scenario:

Well, there is no assigned parking lot at the entryway to D Street. As the road comes to a dead end, there is public parking on both sides of that road with is actually D Street itself. My advice is to look around the side streets in the surrounding area, all along 3rd Street, E Street and D Street, there is public parking. Please make certain not to block somebody's driveway and make sure to look for red curbs and fire hydrants. i make that certain because a friend of mine received a ticket for having his car in a fire zone on accident. The bed of his truck was about 2 feet into the red zone and apparently that was 2 feet too much.

If you are unable to find parking on the side streets surrounding D Street, you can easily park at Moonlight Beach and walk South to D Street. Because Moonlight is equipped with such an ample parking lot, this may be an easy solution to not finding parking around D Street.

Beach Accessibility and Conveniences:

There are a couple of ways to access the beach at D Street. The first way is by means of using the D Street beach access stairs. They are located directly at the end of D Street and are nearly impossible to miss. You can see them in the middle of the above picture. The stairs wind down the bluff and onto the beach, they are well maintained but can often be slippery when wet so watch your step!

The closes public restrooms are located at Moonlight which is about 2 blocks away. More public restrooms can be found down D Street at the restaurants and stores. There is a public shower located about a quarter of the way up the stairs at D Street. It is on the right hand side of the stair case and feels awesome after a long surf session.

Lifeguard:

There is no Lifeguard tower located at the D Street beach as of right now, however I do believe they move a tower there during the Summer seasons. If there is no tower located on the beach, the nearest Lifeguard is located about 5 minutes North on the beach at Moonlight beach. As always, please take extreme caution in the water and be considerate of other surfers and individuals in the water.
