Located in Humboldt County, California, Deadmans is a fun reef break that offers up both lefts and rights perfect for practicing manoeuvres. The waves here are not too challenging to surf and break for up to 200 meters over a rocky reef. Watch out for sharks.
What are the best surf conditions for Deadmans?
Gets good between chest high and double overhead. We recommend riding a longboard here when smaller and a shortboard as the size picks up. This break is suitable for intermediate and advanced level surfers. The surf here is not the most consistent (4/10) and will usually have a crew on it (6/10). The best winds are from the Northeast. The best swells are from the Southwest. Works on all tides but on the push is best.
We recommend wearing a 5/4 here year-round. Water temperatures range between 9 and 13 year round. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
