Peggys in Sydney South is a reasonably exposed reef break that has pretty consitent surf. The best time of year for waves is autumn. Works best in offshore winds from the south southwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the northeast. A reef breaks right. Best around low tide. Rarely crowded here. Watch out for rips, rocks, locals and sharks.
