Best Beginners & Kids Surf Spots*
South Port & Moana Beach to the South of Port Noarlunga are often the best options on the Mid Coast with sheltered Southern ends of beaches best when the winds are from the South. Flat to tiny surf days are common when a drive down to the South Coast can be a good option.
Goolwa to Middleton Beach are best on small to mid sized South East to Southerly swells & on Northerly winds with Middleton Bay Western end the best option for shelter from larger South to South Westerly swells along with marginal shelter from Westerly winds. On big swells, head up to the Mid Coast for smaller waves.
Further down the coast, Long Beach Robe Southern end is best for shelter from larger Southerly & mid sized Westerly swells & on South East to Easterly winds with marginal shelter from Southerly winds.
Surf Beach Beachport Northern end is best for shelter from larger Westerly swells & small to mid sized Southerly swells & on East to Northerly winds along with marginal shelter from Westerly winds closer to town.
Remember, catching green (unbroken) waves is often easier on mid to high tides (less nosedives) or if the waves are too big or challenging, surf whitewater waves close to shore, which is often best on mid to low tides in waist deep water.
