Atmosphere

Started surfing here in 1969 !! Due to easy access, sheltered beach, sandy bottom and very little rips this is a fun place But the waves are not great !! but can be fun. In the summer it gets really crowded with holiday makers and the fun fair in front of the beach makes for an interesting backdrop. Best time in the winter and no parking problems.

Rubbish - this place is quite simply the worst place u'l ever surf. Its a big fat closeout and as the views...not exactly paradise.

Stay outa my way! - YoYo! have you seen me?? huh! huh! you cant miss me. i'm they guy flying round on the sweet Bic longboard. I catch all the waves, i'm the man. I can do cartwheels and handstands and all kinds of crazy shit on my board. Plus i'm the most hansome surf dude on the beach. Come down and check me out if you want but dont expect to get a surf in because i'll take all yor waves muthafukaz.

Coney Beach - How can you tell who's closest to the peak when the whole fucking thing closes out anyway? this is the fundemental problem with the place, everyone is closest to the peak therefore everyone is quite within THEE surfing law. Nah, that's shit, slag the place off if you like but you've all had a good wave here haven't you? perhaps not a good wave in a superbank kinda way but a good wave in as much as you've either stood up for the first time or done your first re entry or 360 or air or whatever, Coney is as fun or as shite as you want to make it, not the best wave in the world but better than smoking crack with a 2b pencil in your arse (just)
