Them's The Breaks... Surfing Australia's NSW Central Coast

Surfing on the Central Coast is more a lifestyle than a pastime. And with 31 official beaches, it’s no surprise!

Buggeries, Half-tide Rocks, The Box, Catho, Ghosties, Moonie, Frazer, Gravelies, The Haven, Macs, Copa, North Avoca, Sharktower, the Pines, Avoca Point, Bushpig, The Bend, Littles, Pellos, Wambie, Shelly, North Shelly, Shelly Point, Forries, Norah Head, Bateau… the list goes on! And let’s not forget the infamous Crackneck… No prizes for guessing the origin of that name!

Central Coast life revolves around its beaches, and it’s a sad (if unusual) day that you can’t find a wave.

As local champions Shane Powell and Ross Clarke-Jones would doubtless agree, there’s nothing quite as exhilarating as the steep drop of a nice clean wave. Giving yourself up to a big wave can be quite a scary commitment, but the pay-off is well worth it. Long board, short board, or body board – when you take the drop, you really know you’re living.

To some its a religion, to some, meditation. Some even say it’s better than sex! But no matter what they say, they get out there!

Central Coast surfers are dedicated. For those unfortunate enough to have a job, dawn patrol is a daily ritual. And forget about shark feeding times, there’s enough light to catch a wave well after sundown! Kids can’t get enough. Despite it being an official school sport, kids spend every afternoon, every weekend, and their entire holidays in the surf. Even local business owners work around the tides and the swell. And one thing’s for sure – if the surf’s up, you wouldn’t be the only one chuckin’ a sicky! cough…

A quick scan of the local Yellow Pages and you’ll discover plenty of local surf schools, surf clubs, boardriding clubs, and surf shops. You might also wanna check out the Surfing Australia website, or the local online surf report, .
