Terramar Reef and Surf

The Reef:

There is a subtle reef located at Terramar which consists of large rocks, plants and sand. It's nothing to be feared but can easily take a fin off your board at low time. Under the main peak, there are a series of rocks that on an extremely low tide can be a tad scary as they aren't far underneath the surface.

Be safe an take caution around shallow areas and be sure to have an idea of what is going on with the surf and tides. Knowing your surroundings will assist to a good surf session and a safe one at that!

The Surf:

Best Tide: Medium to High tides are best for Terramar but  Low tides can lead to some fast walls and fun sections.

Best Swell Directing: West and Northwest swells but during the Summer months, a clean Southwest swell can lead to some awesome waves at Terramar

Best Winds: No wind is best but if any, a East wind will do wonders.

Best Size: Anywhere from 2 - 8 feet.

Best Months to Catch it Going Off: September through April are best best but the Summer months can also provide some fun waves.


A nice set rolling through Terramar

Terramar is an awesome wave that comes pealing into the beach with only a few people enjoying it. The main peak is a subtle drop in with a nice possible bottom turn. At lower tides, the drop can get much steeper and be a fn challenge. Make sure to take caution as there are a few rocks underneath the main peak and at low tides, they can get pretty close.

A decent right rolling along

The inside peak is my personal favorite. On a clean and lined up swell this inside section can turn into a skate park for surfing! It begins with a long wall that provides lots of speed and ends with a very playful shoulder that is awesome for turns. I've had some awesome waves in this inside section and it's definitely something to check out!
