This can totally go off when a good swell is running. The photo provided shows pogos at it's best, when the july swell (2001) hit the spot known as pogos.

Pogos is situated in between Merewether and Dixon Park beach. It's an open stretch beach. When a good swell is happening, not many are out. Localism is promonant but they shouldn't be overally aggresive.

 Additional Information

It's got a typical left break, but will break right (just not as well.) May not break at all on certain swells and this beach sometimes gets full.

To make it easy, park your car in the Dixon Park car park. Then, just stroll down to the beach.

Atmosphere

With this spot, body boarders are generally not welcome when surfers are about. On small wave days, mals and mini-mals are abundant.
The atmosphere is usually relaxing and fun which is quite different from the competitive and edgy atmosphere of Newcastle beach.

General

I think this spot is great for everyone except body boarders. When a swell starts happening then it should left to the more experienced surfer but otherwise, go for it.
