Visitor Reviews of Tathra
“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.”
