Surf Life Saving Central Coast (SLSCC) has 15 clubs with members patrolling 15 beaches from The Lakes (at Budgewoi) in the north, to umina in the south, from September to April. Chad Griffiths, the chief executive officer of SLSCC, said that not all Central Coast beaches are alike. ‘‘To help locals and visitors to decide what beach is best for them and their family the Australian Beach Safety and Management Program (ABSAMP) was established,’’ Chad said. “It gives each beach a hazard rating based on swimming conditions.” The Beach Hazard Scale is as follows: 1-3 Least Hazardous; 4-6 Moderately Hazardous; 7-8 Highly Hazardous; 9-10 Extremely Hazardous. Among the best beach choices for families are Toowoon Bay (rated 4), Terrigal (5), Killcare/Putty Beach (5), Ocean Beach (4) and umina (4). “Toowoon Bay is safe for families with young children as it is a natural bay with outer rocky reefs protecting the beach,” Chad said. “It’s also good for snorkelling and scuba diving around the rock platforms.” Chad said Terrigal was perhaps the most popular and best known of the Coast’s beaches, but parking there can be an issue. Another stand-out is Soldiers Beach (rated 7), at Norah Head. Soldiers hosts the Arrive Alive Central Coast Pro, a four-star rated World Qualifying Series (WQS) event that brings world class surfing to the Coast. Other popular spots for surfers include Wamberal (7), Avoca (6) and Copacabana (6). Lakes Beach (6), North Entrance (7), The Entrance (5), Shelly Beach (6) and MacMasters (5) are also patrolled breaks.
