The Reef:

Not only do the Warm Water Jetties in Carlsbad provide some warm water for a fun session but also give some awesome waves ready to be surfed. Because there are jetties surrounding the beach, there are some rocks in the lineup. The beach is sandy and rocks aren't a huge problem. Make sure to take extreme caution while surfing near the jetties as it can be very easy to be pushed into them and not only ruin your board but ruin your day.

Please note: Jetties can provide awesome waves with the shape and their ability to shape waves but they can be extremely dangerous to surfers. If caught in a rip current, paddle South to get away from the jetties and to get out of the current. I don't recommend surfing by these jetties but if you decide to, please be careful.

The Surf:

Best Tide: Medium to High tides are best for the jetties so the waves have more room to break and shape up.

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

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

Best Size: Anywhere from 2 - 6 feet.

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


The beach at the Warm Water Jetties

Like stated above, surfing any jetty can be dangerous and extreme caution should be taken. With that said, these jetties can provide some amazing waves with the right swell and conditions. With a Northwest in the water, the South jetty can make some awesome rights. The wave stands up as it gets close to the jetties and then just peels off toward the beach.

The take off is crucial because of the nearby rocks but once the take off is secured, these jetties can make some amazing walls and sections for a fun wave.
