Surfing book “Surfing Australia”, speaks of the NSW South Coast as “A Surf Adventurer’s Dream”.
“For a length of coastline stretching from Jervis Bay to Bawley Point the number and quality of surfing break is incredible”.
They mention a few such as the famed “Aussie Pipe” near Jervis Bay, “Green Island” at Bendalong, “Golfie” reef at Mollymook and “Guilitines” at Bawley Point, and the hype they claim is justified.
Check out the Mollymook long boarders web page.
Wreck Bay is just south of Jervis Bay. This is home to the infamous “South Coast Pipe” an intense left tubes upwards of 8′ to 10′ off a southerly swell with NW-E winds. “Green Island” at Bendalong likes a southerly swell with winds from the NE-NW producing long left handers ranging from 6′ to 12′. At Mollymook you have a number of reef breaks that work well with a southerly swell, the best known is “Golfie” reef, however when conditions are right “Kamikaze” & “Crystals” are awesome in the big swells. Nearby is Collers reef break and “Drain-pipes”. 2 km south you have the Ulladulla “Bombie” and “Rennies Beach” reef break. Another couple of Km south is “Dolphin Point”, “Pot-holes”, “Point North-East”, “Wario” and at Bawley Point the famous “Guillotines” reef break. (Click on images to enlarge)
