Pippi Beach

Pippi Beach

New South Wales, North Coast


The most exposed and consistent beach break of Yamba's town beaches. Offering shelter from north winds, this spot can be challenging for learning to surf, even on small surf days, due to the uneven sandbars and strong rip currents.

Wave Type
Shifting and fast breaking peaks break along the length of the beach. The sandbars here are uneven and constantly changing, making for varied wave quality and difficult surfing conditions for inexperienced surfers. Again, rips and long shore currents can make this spot very dangerous, so Pippi Beach is best suited for surfers with experience.

Pippi Beach can be fun however for beginner surfers wanting to seek shelter from north winds during small north swells (when the waves will be just as big, or bigger at Turners and Main Beaches), or during tiny south swells when the surf at the other beaches is flat.

Like Turners & Main Beach, many experienced local kids (and big kids) sneak out for a surf at Pippi Beach between chores, so please practise surfing etiquette.

Good Wind Direction
Best on West to North East winds.

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

Hazards
Rocks, rip currents and marine life.

Have fun surfing Pippi Beach by practising surfing etiquette and surf safety.
Access
Walk from town, or park along Pacific Parade or Ocean Street behind the beach.

Lifeguard Patrolled
Patrolled during the summer and Easter school holidays - always swim between the red and yellow flags.

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

Amenities
Located behind the middle of the beach or back at Main Beach.

Closest Shops
Head to either the kiosk or Pacific Hotel at Main beach or into town for more shops including cafes, restaurants, take away shops and supermarkets.

The surf exposed middle and south end of the beach are challenging for beginner surfers, but this is a great spot for a relaxing stroll south along the beach.
