- Went out on a stunning Sydney Autumn afternoon with another mate, we're both amateurs/ man grommets which is why we chose a small day as our baptism at the bower. There were two paddle surfers, a guy riding a mal, a guy in a kayak and a Brazilian

answer - I propose not to hold off until you get enough amount of money to order all you need! You can just get the personal loans or short term loan and feel yourself fine

Surfing the bower in winter - In winter the water gets down to around 14-16o, so be sure to bring your steamer. The Bower is an awesome spot, does get a bit crowded, but in my opinion is well-worth a paddle. In terms of localism, it pretty much the same as everywhere else - show a little respect, no dropping in and you'll be sweet. Manly is a haven for beginners, so look out for a few wayward boards on the main beachbreaks. In terms of other spots nearby, you'll nearly always be able to find a wave at Curly (Curl Curl), or Dee Why to the north. Long Reef slightly further up faces more south, and even further up the peninsula is the classic Nth Narra. Enjoy!
