How did you like the accommodation?
Last time I stayed at the then “Manly Backpackers” was about 8 years ago, stayed recently since the change over to Stoke Stays and honestly the Hostel is unrecognisable! The rooms are clean, bright and functional, the girls bathrooms have these amazing shower heads and are equipped with hair dryers (which I appreciate). Had such a fun night at the courtyard bar, great vibes, super friendly staff. Right around the corner from the Beach and all the main pubs, perfect location in walking distance of everything I wanted to do in Manly. Also check out the amazing wine store next door and the free yoga
How were the surf lessons?
The waves were small and easy for beginners. I felt safe with the instructors and came out of the session with more and more confidence

Level: All Levels
Manly is a 3km stretch of beach and the first surf beach on the northside after Sydney Harbour. It’s protected by a large headland on the southern corner which creates clean mellow waves for learning in a common south swell and southerly wind. Manly is an easy to going, slopey wave that suits mid to longboarders, beginners and intermediate surfers.
The best banks are usually found out in front of North Steyne Surf Club which is in the middle of the beach.

The North Beaches
Sydney is a town whose waves are divided by being either north or south of the harbour, the latter getting a little more swell than the former.
The northern beaches offer a great selection of sheltered coves, beach breaks and point breaks for surfers of all levels. Some of the must-surf spots on this stretch of coastline include: Manly, Curl Curl, Dee Why and Narrabeen. These all have a selection of right and sometimes left hand point breaks that tend to work on a southeast to easterly swell direction. Try to get in the water early to take advantage of the favourable morning winds and if you can manage to get in a low tide you’ll be sure to find some hollow waves to duck under.
The South Beaches
This is the slightly wilder side of Sydney that can pick up, or at least handle slightly more swell. The Cronulla region of the south side is rich with a variety excellent reef breaks that love the bigger swells.
One of it’s hidden treasures is Shark Island, a fast barrelling right hand break that was once considered an option for boogie boarders only, but now surfers have begun to embrace this Australian version of pipeline that’s for the experienced riders only.
So when the swell hits, head south because you’ll be rewarded with all the set-ups you need to get a memorable surf underfoot. While the northern beaches provide great waves in east to north east swells from January through June the south side reef breaks will pump during the July months and onwards.
