Join TCSD at Tamarack Beach in Carlsbad Monday and Wednesday evening.

North County ocean swimmers! Join TCSD at Tamarack Beach in Carlsbad Monday and Wednesday evening.


Meet at 5:45, and hit the water at 6:00 PM.

Directions: Take I-5 to the Tamarack Exit in Carlsbad. Go West. Look for us on the sand near the handicapped parking spaces.

Parking: A pay parking lot is located at the West end of Tamarack. California State parking pass is accepted. There is also free parking along the coast highway and side streets.

We swim through the surf together then meet up just past the breakers. From there we split into groups according to ability and swim about 1/2 mile parallel to shore. We gather up again at the turn-around then swim back. We use the buddy system so no one swims alone.

Tamarack is a surf Beach, so it this swim is for more experienced swimmers. It is a great place to practice your surf entries. If surf entries are new to you or make you nervous, let me know ahead of time, and I will make sure that someone stays with you to coach you through the surf.

See you at the beach!!

    Quite a few swimmers have been going without. At this time of year it's a matter of personal preference. Right now the water is in the mid to upper 60's.

    Do I need a wetsuit? Did La Jolla a month ago without one and was a little chilly but ok! :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
