The surf here is usually ideal for children since this beach receives some protection from Moreton Bay, and from Moreton Island which is visible from Woorim Beach. The beach is patrolled by the Bribie Island Surf Club from September to May each year, and as always, it is best to swim between the flags. The Bribie Island Surf Club also runs a nippers program for children aged 7-13 years, with 2020's sign on days held on Saturday 29 August and Sunday 30 August from 10am - 2pm. The Bribie Island Surf Club is also trialing an accessible beach trail with wheelchair-friendly matting, and free beach wheelchair hire on weekends and public holidays. To arrange this free hire you can call (07) 3408 1168.

For this reason, if walking north along the beach beyond the Ocean Beach Access Track it is important to keep an eye out for four wheel drive vehicles on their way to the Bribie Island National Park, especially as the surf can drown out the sound of their engines.
