Tathra in Far South New South Wales is a reasonably exposed beach break that has fairly consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Works best in offshore winds from the west. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southeast. Waves at the beach are both lefts and rights. Best around mid tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Beware of rips and sharks.

Visitor Reviews of Tathra

John smith from AUSTRALIA writes:

Tathra is always flat in summer, the bigger and better waves are late February to June and you can also get good waves in the winter but it is usually chopped up by the wind. The best waves are usually at the northern end with a good bank at the river mouth (when it is open ) and it is usually bigger once you get half way along the beach which is called the pole.

Don't try and snake and take waves of the young locals because they rip it up and you will get in trouble and struggle to get another wave for your session, the locals are very nice but you shouldn't turn up to a beach and not know the history behind it and all the groups that have surfed it and try and take waves of the locals.
