Dee Why Surf Spots

Dee Why point is a well known surf break on the Northern Beaches. Breaking over the shallow reef platform where the rock pool is, this is a fast, hollow break that can hold serious size especially during the Winter months. When its on, the take off point gets gnarly with surfers concentrated into a small area. The point is not a break for beginners still learning to navigate line ups. Learners can stay on the inside of the point at Kiddies corner to ride rolling whitewater waves. Adjacent to the point, breaking into the same rip is a consistent left hand beach break. Further along there are various breaks all the way up to Long Reef which tend to close out more often than not.
