Original Oil Painting by Sally West. Created on location at Queenscliff Headland overlooking Manly Beach. 

Manly is the first of Sydney’s multiple northern beaches and reputedly the birthplace of Australian surfing following a visit and surfing demonstration by Hawaiian Olympic swimming champion Duke Kahanamoku. It is a popular beach (and area) with tourists and can get busy.

The surf here is pretty consistent with the break picking up plenty of swell through most of the year. The best surf here is found with a west, south west wind and a north east groundswell. Both lefts and rights are available depending on the current state of the banks.
