Merimbula Bar in Far South Australia is a fairly exposed beach/Sandbar break that only works once in a while. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Works best in offshore winds from the north. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southeast. The beach breaks consists of lefts. It's often crowded here. Watch out for sharks.
