there are great banks all along the beach here and at the south end of lake cathie has a point break called middle rock this is the most popular and consistant wave.. Nice clean wave out the back but usually a fun smaller shorey in close car can be parked very close to surf due to road near the beach .check Lake cathie out this place cracks it very under rated
a mad town to surf in low crowd veriety of spots and even if its on shore u will get a wave CHECK IT OUT 4 SURE. this spot is very consistent and is a swell magnet , always a wave even if its onshore if the wind is westerly or no wind at all cathie will be craking and better than most surrounding areas and less crowded. hit this spot early any morning and your garenteed a good quality fun wave .

frothin grommie - yer pretty much lived in cathie about three years now cant wait to get out of hear, seriously i have not got a descent wave here for about a year now. When "60's" used to pump they were the days. yer my main message to get across is never move here your wasting your time.

good surf though - maybe the local council should change the spelling to lake cat-eye. its ment to be pronounced cathy, but due to uneducated hicks back in the day its known as cateye.
