Found just West of Waitpinga Beach, South Australia, Parson Beach is a fun but strong beach break with a sandy bottom. It is a very similar wave to Waitpinga Beach, with perhaps slightly less quality. The waves here can be a little tricky, breaking for up to 100 meters serving up some strong sections for turns as well as some barrels. Be aware of great white sharks.
