The Carlsbad Lagoon (Aqua Hedionda Lagoon), Carlsbad, CA is a great place to SUP in the morning or early evening.You can circumvent the lagoon for a 2 or 3 mile paddle.Tides in the Lagoon ebb and flow, alternatively, twice a day. The rates of flow vary twice a month due to gravitational forces of the Sun and Moon on the Earth. It’s a great place for a flat water stand up paddle boarding
experience. While paddling you will see the California Brown Pelican gliding over the Lagoon, California towhees feeding in the understory, the red-tailed hawk hunting from high above, and Anna’s hummingbirds defending their territory. You’ll also see the occasional stingray, and mullet jumping several feet into the air and moving into shallow water to spawn.

Oceanside Harbor in Oceanside, CA is a great place to paddle, and brings a little more challenge to your SUP experience. Usually the water is flat, and the winds are calm in the harbor. As you venture out from the harbor and near the jetties you get more ocean like conditions. The jetties is a more advance area to paddle. You will be experiencing swells coming in from the Pacific Ocean, and also some boat traffic. It can make for a fun SUP experience, but maybe not for your first time on a SUP. First time on a SUP I recommend paddling in the harbor, and if conditions are calm head out to the jetties.
