 Additional Information

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.
