For surfers, there aren’t many metropolitan areas in the world that can come close to Sydney in terms of the variety and quality of wave options available.
Some people reckon that the best surfing options are definitely up on the Northern Beaches( north of the harbour), but the southern and eastern beaches crew may have something to say about that with plenty of choices as well. There is no way around it ,due to the Sydney’s huge surfing culture, you’ll find the waves at the better breaks packed on a good day, and there are a few beaches were you should be wary of the locals.
