Coogee reef generally only breaks well when there is a solid groundswell of 8ft+. When it is big enough to be breaking well the shorey will be dangerous and very shallow so getting out can be tricky.
The inside "Inners" break can break is very sucky and normally on able to be rided on a bodyboard. However the Out side break "Outers" is a good powerful wave that can turn into a long ride. On a good day the take off section will barrel and then there will be different sections for turning. The wave will almost always end when it hits the Shorebreak and closes out.
If you are an experienced surfer you should check out the Bombie which is situated off the Northern Point or if you are really up for it Wedding cake Island in big swell is good for tow - ins and is a barreling reef on the inside near Wylies baths.
Coogee reef is a fun wave which doesnt really get very crowded. Does not break often. Good for the days when everywhere else in the area is too big.
