Cronulla in Sydney South is an exposed beach break that has quite consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds from the northwest. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southeast. The beach break provides left and right handers. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Watch out for rips and locals.
