Toddy from Australia
“Curl Curl is a consistent beach break, at its best with a SE swell and a WSW wind. It has 3 different 'spots'. North Curl Curl, South Curl Curl and Mid Curl Curl, which is the best of the 3. South Curly has many rips but also home to 'the point' which is a section of reef that only works at high tide. There is also a kind of 'wedge' which work at high tide with a strong W wind. Mid Curly is the most consistent because it is the most exposed. It is a great beach to learn to surf or bodyboard. North Curly is good with a NE wind which produces heavy shorebreaks. A great place to visit and learn so I encourage you to visit.
