Maroubra Beach is the often overlooked masterpiece of Sydney's surf beaches. Open to the great Pacific Ocean it receives the full strength of its waves, especially when the sets arrive with power, driven by an east or north-easterly swell. The beach itself stretches approximately a kilometre in length between the arms of a wide bay with a picturesque green, rocky, heath and grass-covered peninsula at the south end and a line of splendid, mysterious, rocky cliffs stretching away into the distance at the north end.

What the - I have nothing to do with the surf, except when I go to the beach twice a year on hols - What I know is snow skiing! I live in the snow and I share it with all who come and and play in it, I dont own the mountain, I dont own the snow, nuffies cut me off, knock me over every second day but I get over it -so all "locals" pull your head in or "we" will kick you off our mountains with your snowboards fair up your arse!
