North Era Surf Guide

North Era in Sydney South is an exposed beach and point break that has very reliable surf. Winter is the optimum time of year for surfing here. 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. Waves at the beach break both left and right and also offers a left hand point break too. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Rarely crowded here. Beware of rips, rocks and locals.
