Woolgoolga Surf Guide

Woolgoolga on the North Coast is an exposed beach and reef break that has reasonably consistent surf. Autumn and winter are the optimum times of year for waves. Works best in offshore winds from the south with some shelter here from south winds. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the east southeast. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. Best around mid tide when the tide is falling. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
