Week crowdFew surfers
The main break at Malabar is a left hander that rolls over the reef and gradually dyng off into a channel but occasionally (rarely) the wave will break through the channel and into a shoredump. Although it's a ficle break, when it works it really works. When it's bigger try mid to high tides, low tide is better but, because it creates a nice wall, but i reco that you wear booties on low but.
Atmosphere is good until you see shit floating past you. Get's good on low tide. WAtch for urchins. Otherwise go have some fun, can get awesome.
Malabar only works in huge swells, when it's about 6-10ft at nearby breaks(maroubra) it will be around 3ft+ at Malabar. But depends on swell direction.
