Atmosphere

Backsides is basically flat rock, in between lennox head and ballina, it is a nice beach to go for a walk and go fishing, it's a great place to take the day out.

This place is fun when its 2-3ft but it's a neck and board chewing machine when its big. The wave looks a bit like a mini Teahupoo when it's on. It lurches out of deep water and many waves suck dry. I have seen big sharks here. It is rare to get it truely good but the hideous take off and true square barrels make it fun. Beware Begginners !
