Stuff right off the point can get good. Gets tricky with high tide due to reflection of wave off cliffs. Small rock reefs both north and south of stairwell. Need good swell size for them to open up. Large swell and high tide can have good rides, but again... cliffs. Once gets sizable and tide drops, becomes closeout. Fickle spot.
Fun spot. If you study it a bit and get the right conditions, fun stuff. Otherwise... head north to Tamarack for consistency.

would be fun... - the wave is great for a talented shortboarder, but youll have to paddle faster than 100 longboarders and 20 SUPs to catch one. and youll still get cut off. sadly that describes almost every reef in north county these days

Awesome-ness - I LOVE TERRA MAR POINT! I go here all of the time. The other day I surfed a little farther North at a spot called "Breams" (not breens). It was 4-5 foot sets. The paddle out was easy and there was a backwash that would make the wave shoot up and make it huge. I have never had so much fun surfing. Terra Mar point is my favorite spot. I have only had problems once here with a pink no-nose local cuz i cut him off. He cussed at me forever.

Local? Shmocal! Roy's a farmer's boy soon to be unemployed!! - So that's where he's been going every afternoon, when I've asked him to stay late & plow the backfields, as if those dumb waves were worth losing his job over. Just because our flower farm is located off Palomar Airport rd. doesn't make Roy a local at all. He can go back to pickin' grapes in Temecula, for all I care now, that's closer to his place in Wildomar anyhow. You're fired Roy-boi!!
