This spot is INSIDE Sydney Harbour.
It only works on massive north to east swells, which come in through the heads, bounce off Mosman and break on this point/reef set up. If you hear on the news that the Manly Ferry has been cancelled due to big seas, there's a good chance Nielsen will be working.
The wave is nothing special. On a good day it will be shoulder high and is almost always very crowded. It's a surging/crumbling wave so bring a bigger board.
The view however is spectacular. If you look to your right there's a view of the city skyline.
Beware the end section - there's an exposed storm water drain on the left and a shark net on the right. And expect to be dropped in on... lots.
Worth it for the novely factor.
It's a rare treat that you'll never forget.
