Terramar Reef and Surf
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.

around shallow areas and be sure to have an idea of what is

A nice set rolling through
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

caution as there are a few rocks underneath the main peak
and at low tides, they can get pretty close.

The inside peak is my
personal favorite. On a clean and lined up swell this inside

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!
