Torrey Pines Reef and Surf

The Reef:

The underlying portion of Torrey Pines surf spot is mostly consisted of sand and a few rocks here and there. Due to the erosion of the cliffs that line the beach, the reefs and rocks under the water are often covered up by sand and dirt that enters the water. Watch for a few odd rocks here and there but for the most part, feel pretty confident about what's going on underneath you.

The Surf:

Best Tide: Low to Medium tides.

Best Swell Directing: Torrey Pines tends to take both SW and NW the best.

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: Summer and throughout the Winter months.


Torrey Pines has some of the best waves for a beach break in the San Diego area. In fact, on a good swell, the River mouth at Torrey Pines can produce perfect, A-Frame waves that peel and rip for what seems like forever. The rest of the beach has awesome peaks and sections to ride but it's just a matter of finding the right wave to suit your needs. You'll see good things from Torrey Pines in both the summer and winter seasons due to the fact that it's angle is open to many different types of swell directions.

When surfing the River mouth, make sure to not surf this area too soon after a storm due to the fact that a lot of run off and pollution might enter the water at this point. If you do decide to surf here after or during a storm, make sure you're up to date on your shots!
