New South Wales, Sydney
Famous for it's natural beauty, luxury homes and as the film set for a popular TV series, the surf spot known as kiddies corner, located at the southern end of Palm Beach, is consistently one of the best learn to surf spots in Sydney.
When the surf is small, gentle waves roll through in the southern corner and a good little right breaks beside the pool when the sand builds up. Peaks can break along the length of the beach, and wave shape is at it's best on north east to east swells. The sandbars however often form an almost continual bar along the middle and southern sections of the beach that sees dumping, close out waves break, so beginners are best to stick to the whitewater when the waves are dumping.
Rips do form along the beach, and watch out for the rip up against the rocks in the southern corner that can be strong, especially during north east swells. If the surf is flat in the southern corner, head up the beach for bigger waves.
