The surf here is pretty consistent with the break picking up plenty of swell through most of the year. The best surf here is found with a west, south west wind and a north east groundswell. Both lefts and rights are available depending on the current state of the banks.
The surf is mostly suitable for beginners but on bigger swells is only for more experienced surfers. You can also find Manly Life Saving Club here, founded in 1903 it is over 100 years old.
