 Additional Information

Stunning beach with (usually) an easy paddle out in the channels and with more peaks to choose from than you can poke a stick at! If it's a smaller day (1mtr swell) go towards the mid tide - low tide as the wave will be better, when the swell is between 1.5 - 2 mtrs it only works on a high tide, if the swell is any bigger it closes out the banks. Beware of Noahs, with the exception of the Nobbies on the island and Kanowa Island off the Prom, it really doesn't get much sharkier than at this spot.

Atmosphere

Woodside Beach, like most beach breaks around the world can offer up some of the best waves you'll ever surf, certainly it's one of the few places around here that can provide you with the opportunity for a view from the green room. When all the conditions come together it's a truly awesome place to surf. Best conditions are a hig tide ~2mtrs + NE swell running between 2-3mtrs and a north west wind at about 10knots, pretty rare to get them all together but when it does, it's an awesome session. Watch out for sharks as this area has been noted by CSIRO as a key breeding/feeding ground for immature (1-2mtr) great whites and the local fishos seem to catch big sharks off Woodside Beach on a disturbingly regular basis...also some big seals around here to scare the pants off you too!

General

Has it's good days and bad days but if you live locally enough to hit it when it's working it can be better than any other break in this area with big, fast, powerful, sucky and hollow waves.
