Atmosphere

it is a fun wave because you can get all the feeling of a rock and point break, like at dee why, or butter box, but the depth of the water gets every rider at leats once or twice a session, but other than that, the brut power, and suckiness of the wave suprises even good surfers and bodyboarders around.

General

A good wave for anyone, unless you are a begginer, then the collaroy side of the pipe may appeal to you more

Peaky Swell - I surfed South Narra last year on a mix of NE and S swell. There were some great 4 foot barrels that were actually spitting. NE and S are good swells, though it doesn't hold much size over 6 foot. The sandbanks are the key though like most beachies.

Bodyboarders - You are going to get alot og bodyboarders at Narrabeen as thats where one of the major bodyboard only shops is.

Over crowding - Yeah i have left messages a while back and i loved southy then becuz of less crowding now in the last year i like it even more becuz 90% of the time i can surf it with me and about 5 other local boys sharing a nice peak however in that other 10% all the surfers that talk shit about the break decide to surf it and way too many shark bisquits decide to surf aswell.... I would also like to hail roger the police dog....
