South Curl Curl
South Curl Curl is a mixed bag of waves with the occasional ‘point’ style wave near the ocean pool, other times it is a shorey and often it is just a lot varied sandbanks. Waves often bounce off the rocky headland and make peaks, this can be a blessing or a curse depending on how far along the wave you catch it. Good waves are the ones that just power down the line. On smaller swells, there are plenty of beach break options, usually with a bit of a crowd as Curly tends to pick up the most swell of any beach on the north side. Waves here generally have a bit of wonk to them unlike the well-gromed shape of other breaks nearby like the various sandbanks in Manly.
