Temae Surf Guide

Temae in Moorea is a fairly exposed reef break that only works when conditions are just right. Winter is the favoured time of year for surfing here. Works best in offshore winds from the southwest with some shelter here from southeast winds. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the south. A right hand reef break. It's sometimes crowded here. Take care of rocks, fire coral and sharks.
