I surf this break and its brother Ocean Beach regularly.
This beach is notorious for its long board and mini mal rides. Also good for a short board or a lid when it's pumping.
Swell breaks on sand bars and always best for a stand up on a higher tide running in or out.
On a good day you can get some very nice, powerful, fast waves with good sections. I have had days out here also where it has been 1 - 2 foot and I have been out on a mini mal / mal and caught very long waves (200+ metres).
Heaps of newbies and holidayers in Summer time so have your patience and your wits about you. Locals are fine just don't snake or drop in (this is universal at any beach).
Breaks on either side are Ocean Beach which is very similar, as well as Box Head (superior ride but inconsistent and heaps of sharks)and Umina Point (great for a lid).
Locals are friendly and not threatening. There is talk of "Umina Boys" but they are just kids looking to fit into a group. Just like any beach, know youe etiquette.
Very scenic, with views of Box head, surrounding bush headlands and gullies.
Love this spot as I live here and surf it regularly.
I ride a mal and a mini mal so I get good waves on nearly all days.
Locals are a bit "Coastie" and simple, but more people from Sydney are moving up so it is getting better.
