The rocky outcrop at the southern end of Dee Why Beach is Dee Why Point. Paddle out is either a well-timed jump off the rocks or paddle from the beach.
The wave itself deserves respect, as do the locals. A local classic that stands upon a rock ledge, throws over into a solid barrel and sections off down the line for up to 100m. It all happens very fast. Add 30 to 50 surfers in the water and it is intense. A great challenge for good surfers and no place for a beginner.
Dee Why Point holds swell up to 10ft but is best at 6ft with a light S to West wind. If you are up for it, go and get out there, just take care and be nice!
Dee Why beach also has some good waves all the way up to Longreef. The waves here can be bank dependant. There can also be a good left breaking in towards the rip that leads out the point. Head north up the beach for less crowds.
