Duranbah (D-Bah) Spot Guide

About Duranbah (D-Bah)

Duranbah or D-Bah sits on the north side of the Tweed River, which marks the border with New South Wales. The rivermouth jetties have helped form powerful wedging peaks that provide ample tube time at one of the worlds finest beachbreaks. D-Bah soaks up the swell and people, making it one of the “Goldies” main surfing focal points. Crowds can be insane because when the Pacific is in the doldrums and the points are sleeping, D-Bah will have thumping little A-frame wedges, somewhere along it's length. Refraction off the breakwall helps to focus power on the peak and it will pick up any swell from NE around to S. Often closes out, but the tube time before is worth it. Huge local crew dominate the line-up, so you might want to check some of the other beaches south of the border for less stressful sessions.
