Point Roadknight

Point Roadknight

Victoria, Great Ocean Road

South of Anglesea, off the point on the most southern tip of town is a super fun sand bottomed right point break and beach break that is epic for kids and beginners - on a good day, this is one of the best learn to surf spots in Victoria. The surf is often very small here in summer (great for introducing kids to the surf) but during bigger swells, it can get crowded with experienced surfers who also frequent this spot, especially when other spots are too big and onshore, so please practise surfing etiquette.

Wave Type
Long rights peel off the point and down the broad, low gradient sandbar, with the best waves on lower tides. Point Roadknight is a great option for parents looking for a safe place for their kids to practise surfing - kids will have a heap of fun here when the waves are tiny and the tide is low. On bigger surf days when experienced surfers are in the line up, stick to catching the whitewater waves on the inside sandbar or find a spot in the line up with fewer crowds.

The beach breaks heading north towards town can also be good and often have bigger spilling waves - watch out for rocks. If the surf is flat here, check out the south facing beaches to the west for bigger waves (and north wind protection) but watch out for rips and rocks.

Point Roadknight, Cosy Corner in Torquay, Lorne and Apollo Bay offer the best shelter from big swells on this coast, so if the surf is too big here, give surfing a miss for the day, sit back and enjoy watching the raw energy of the ocean unload on this spectacular coast.

Good Wind Direction
Best on South West to West winds.

Good Swell Direction For Fun Beginner Waves
Big West to South West swells, moderate South to small East swells.

- Rocks, Rip Currents, Marine Life and Boats.

Have fun surfing Point Roadknight by practising surfing etiquette and surf safety.

The car park is located at the point behind the southern end of the beach.

Lifeguard Patrolled
Patrolled daily during the peak summer holiday season (26th of December until the 26th of January) - always swim between the red and yellow flags.

Beginners & kids are best to surf at beaches when Lifeguards are on patrol or with a friend who has decades of surfing experience.

Located at the car park on the point.

Closest Shops
There is a kiosk behind the beach, along with cafes and take always in the town of Anglesea and at the other towns located along the Great Ocean Road.

Point Roadknight NYE. Close to shore is normally a safe spot for kids to swim in the waveless sand pools that form, where the water warms up in the summer sun.

One foot set of the day! When the surf is big here, beginners are best to stick to the inside sandbars away from the experienced surfers that take over the line up when the waves are good.
