Crowdy Beach

Crowdy Beach

New South Wales, Mid North Coast

A great option for beginner surfers looking for a smaller wave during big south swells. The big headland here also offers protection from strong south winds and the waves here spill slowly and softly thanks to the wide and gradually sloping sandbar, making this mellow wave excellent for kids and timid big kids!

Wave Type
Spilling close out waves are the norm in the southern corner of the beach due to the straight and wide sandbar, but these waves do break slowly so those wanting to practise catching green waves and turn will still have fun. The flat sandbar makes catching whitewater waves easy and safe too. Watch out for rips including against the rocks in the southern corner.

Bigger waves, often with better shape for turning along the wave face, break up the beach and on the exposed south facing beaches in the area. These spots are isolated and can be dangerous for beginner surfers due to the strong rips and more challenging surf conditions that are often present.
Good Wind Direction
Best on South to North West winds, with South East winds still OK.

Good Swell Direction For Fun Beginner Waves
Small North East to Moderate East to Big South swells.

- Rocks
- Rip Currents
- Marine life

Have fun surfing Crowdy Head by practising surfing etiquette and surf safety.

Park next to the surf club in the southern corner of the beach.

Lifeguard Patrolled
Crowdy Beach is patrolled from September to the end of the Easter holidays on weekends and public holidays - always swim between the red and yellow flags.

Beginners & kids are best to surf when Lifeguards are on patrol or with a friend who has decades of surfing experience.

Located next to the surf club.

Closest Shops
There's a kiosk that is open in summer and a fish co-op, otherwise head to the town of Harrington to the south where you'll find a meal, coffee and supplies.
