    Surf Spots Caloundra has eight spots facing both north and south. Kings Beach often looks messy and crappy but transforms to hollow, pitching peaks when NEÕers hit. The groyne at the southern end sits on a rock shelf and entertains thick, cylindrical lefts in most NE-SE swells and is protected from any N wind. A bit further south at Happy's, the sandbars that flank the Pumicestone Passage can output long, full lefts. Moffats is home to the mal and somewhere to tune-up on cutbacks between the long, crumbly sections, which are more makeable at higher tides. The Reef is a 20mins paddle and should only be undertaken by accomplished surfers who can manage the drop and spitting keg. Anne Street Reef can get real good on moderate swells, when powerful lefts and rights appear, attracting a crowd. Dicky Beach and Neill St are hollow with a thumping shorey, so naturally a lot of bodyboarders. The surf becomes less crowded and more powerful towards Wurtulla and Long Track in the Currimundi Lake Conservation Park. Source:
