This wave is one of Australia's classic lefthanders, but it is extrmely fickle.
During school hoildays and after school, all the local gromets surf this place. Also there are a lot of surf skis and mals to contend with.
Very fickle location, but when it gets good, it is a absloute joy to surf, looonnnnggggg and perfect. Very fun
Merimula is a beautiful place to just hang out, with a few other top surf spots as well. When Merimula bar gets good, it gets very crowded, so you have to just be patient. A classic wave, and worth the trip to the place.

answer to ur question - to answer ur question mate i'd say its all up too you, the bar is pretty fickle, u might get a sick swell u can tear up on ur shortboard or something smaller that u'd be better off on a fish with but i would say check the forecast and bring the board for the conditions.
