New South Wales, South Coast
Heading north from Victoria, Asling Beach, located at the town of Eden inside the picturesque Twofold Bay can offer fun waves for beginner surfers, especially during common summer small swell and north wind surf conditions.
Smaller waves are normally found at the northern end of the beach (apart from on big south swells) and it's here you'll find shelter from north wind. The sandbars can be great for catching green waves and turning when the waves are small - avoid the rip currents that do form all along the beach, especially towards the middle and south end.
During big south swells and strong south winds, head up to Pambula Beach to the north or even Tathra further up the coast for smaller waves and smoother surface conditions. During and after heavy rain, the water can get a bit murky at Aslings Beach due to it's location inside the bay that is full of creeks that run off into the bay - give surfing a miss until the water cleans up.
