Moggy from Australia
“This is local break for Maroubra crew. Sheltered in Southerly wind. Swell needs to be 2.5 metres + for the break to start working. Main wave starts off as deep water peak with steep walling takeoff adjacent to rocky shore . Wave pushes wide and fades into deep waer after first section. Not known for barrels.
On swells over 4 metres and lower tides sets peak and break alongside outside point, turning main peak into inside section.
Only access is jump off from rocks behind peak. To exit break must paddle into rocks through hellish rip on inside of bay. The bigger the swell, the stronger the rip.
Watching the wave from shore it appears to be breaking towards the rocks, and takeoff gives the rider a similar perspective.
Larrys left is a dubious wave that breaks out from rocks on opposite side from Lurline, and only begins to show when swell around 3 metres.”
