Parking is fine, just tip the car guard. On a bigger day the paddle out can be hazardous with strong rips, but persevere and it will be worth it!

Dear wrong - Chill out dude. When that email was written back in 03 there was no Sun Coast built. I had my car stolen in broad daylight right next to the life guard station. Second off the wave is okay. I’m not saying it doesn’t get epic there. It just isn’t as good as town on average. Yes the crowds are less than town though. Great shore break there sounds to me like you a sponger and that is why you are defending battery beach that hard. Either that or you are one of those fags in the circle jerk group.Cheers

Ha Ha - Well let's face it! Battery was a bit of a gay beach. It still has good waves on occasion and with the introduction of the Sun Coast Casino it's cleaned up a whole bunch. However, good luck trying to find parking on the weekends!the whole area North of Durban's main beaches has loads of peaks and shorebreaks.
