The Seaspray section of Ninety Mile Beach is a 2 km long section centred on the small seaside holiday settlement of Seaspray. The beach is straight, faces the south-east, and receives southerly waves averaging 1.4 m. However, higher waves associated with westerly gales and the finer sand along this section produce a wide, low beach; fronted by a 120 m wide surf zone containing two shore parallel bars. The inner bar is usually attached to the shore and is either continuous (LTT) or cut by rip channels every 250 m. A 50 m wide, 2 m deep trough lies between the inner and outer bars. Waves greater than 1 m usually break on the outer bar, which is also cut by rip channels and currents every few hundred metres. There is a tendency for the waves and currents to run up the beach, due to the common south to westerly winds.
The surf club, formed in 1955, is located in the centre of the foreshore reserve and adjacent to the caravan park. Most facilities are available at the club and adjacent park and settlement.
