One of Australia’s most well-known waves and one of Sydney’s most consistent breaks. At the end of Ocean St you will find North Narrabeen.
A quality beach break formed by shifting sand from the beach and lagoon entrance. The lefts can get world-class but on their day the right can get pretty good too! Best in offshore NW winds and a NE swell this wave can produce. Paddle out is from the beach and can be a bit of a challenge once the swell picks up.
The crowd is very LOCALISED and situations can get heavy out there if the waves are crowded or you piss someone off. If you are surfing out here just take it easy and show plenty of respect. Be prepared to take waves in between sets or on the inside, they will still be fun!
