Surf Beach – Batemans Bay

Surf Beach - Batemans Bay

New South Wales, South Coast


Surf Beach is the closest beach to the town of Batemans Bay that as the name suggests, has surf. The waves at this small beach are best suited for kids and absolute beginners wanting to practise catching whitewater waves close to shore, because even on small wave days, fast breaking, dumping close outs here are the norm.

Wave Type
The broad flat sandbar makes this a good spot for those practising in the whitewater with the southern corner of the beach often having the smallest and softest waves. Catching green waves is best attempted during high tides. Watch out for the rocks in the middle of the beach and in each corner.

Less steep waves and better wave shape can be found at Rosedale Beach at times and better still, at Broulee Beaches further south. If the waves are too big here from a north swell, Barlings Beach at Tomakin will have the smallest waves and the north corner of the more challenging South Broulee Beach can also be an option - both of these beaches offer good shelter from strong north winds.  If the waves are too big or too dumpy from a south swell, check out the southern end of Broulee Beach for easier surfing conditions.

Good Wind Direction
Best on South West to North West winds.

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

Hazards
- Rocks
- Rip Currents
- Marine life

Surf Beach Close Out

Close out waves are the norm on Surf Beach, thanks to the flat sandbar that drops off steeply into deep water, causing the waves to dump in long sections.

Surf Beach Small Spilling Wave

Beginners and kids will find catching green waves best at high tide when the waves spill more slowly or stick to the whitewater to avoid nosedives.
