Sydney

Sydney is incredibly beautiful and always seems on the edge of some kind of waterway yet still manages to be surrounded by all the modern trappings of a world-class city. While you will want to spend most time surfing in Sydney, its wise to check out all the sights on offer because you won’t be disappointed.

It has an excellent selection of restaurants situated either on the brink of a cliff overlooking the sea or tucked away next to a sheltered harbour. Needless to say, the view will compliment the delicious cuisine. There’s also ample opportunity to visit museums or art galleries, go shopping, enjoy beachside walks through national parks and finish up your day by getting stuck into the bustling nightlife.

Regardless of whether or not you’re travelling with a fellow surfer, there is something for everyone. And if you tire of the hustle and bustle of the city, you can jump on a train to the famous Blue Mountains where you can find tranquility in a seemingly untouched natural setting. This is the city that caters for everyone, twice over.

Getting to Sydney by Plane

Regardless of where you are in the world you’ll find an airline that will take you there.

Once There
Sydney has a population of almost 4 million that covers almost 1120 square kilometres (700 square miles) yet is a remarkably easy city to move around in.

There are first class train, bus and ferry service that will take you to all points of the greater metropolitan area. If you hire a car the roads can get super congested in peak hour times, abut they re generally well planned and driving is not too harrowing an experience.
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.
