Dum Dums on the South Coast is an exposed reef break that only works when conditions are just right. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Works best in offshore winds from the west northwest. Windswells and groundswells in equal measure and the ideal swell angle is from the southeast. A right hand reef break. It very rarely gets crowded here. Beware of urchins, rips, rocks, locals and sharks.
