Jervis Bay Surf Spots

While the bay itself only gets surf when there are huge swells, the unique geography of the area usually means there you can find an ocean facing beach which is offshore.

The surf breaks located in the Boderee National Park in Jervis Bay are characterised by pristine clear waters and pristine natural surroundings. Summercloud Shipwrecks Bay, nicknamed the "Aussie Pipe" is the prime break, an a-frame breaking over a shallow reef with a powerful hollow right hander made for getting shacked. Surfers have to be competent before attempting this wave as you need to nail the take off and pull into the barrel. The other factor is other surfers who will travel from far and wide to to experience the Pipe breaking at its finest. Steamers beach is another option. Its a long 2+ km bush walk from the car park and down a steep flight of stairs, but the rewards are a chance to be by yourself in beautiful amphitheatre surroundings. The beach is home to a seal colony and the large fish that it attracts may be another reason why people don't venture this way. Further West in the park, Cave Beach is another great spot with beach breaks and a right hander breaking off the rocks. Bherwerre beach, next to Cave beach is an 8km long South facing beach which is offshore in Summer months.

On the Beecroft Peninsula, Windy Gully at Currarong is a beginner friendly spots which is protected from large South Swells and South wind combo. In bigger swells, there are reef breaks around worth checking out.
