Newport Beach has a couple of rock bottomed spots which are in plain view of Pittwater Rd, attracting a hefty crowd to both the The Peak towards the north end and The Reef breaking outside off the sea pool at the southern end. Sand builds up around a platform reef and all swells will trip over it, with NE-E often being the best to bring the favoured lefts to life. Moves in and out with the tide but always breaks with a bit of oomph, offering tubes, hooks and cutback walls in one short package.

Could be Sydney's most crowded spot and the list of local rippers is headed by Tom Carroll.
