THE LOW DOWN
TSA also holds lessons at Urquharts Bluff, Fairhaven and Lorne beaches. They are all further down the coast along the Great Ocean Road and have great beginner waves when it’s small. Fairhaven is not so friendly when it’s bigger than 3 feet. If you are a beginner, head to Lorne which is protected from big swells and strong west/southwest winds. Lorne’s main street runs along the foreshore and the pub overlooks the beach. It’s all in one spot – surf, food and beer – what more could you want?
Meeting Point: Fairhaven – In the carpark, behind the Fairhaven Surf Club
Lorne – In the carpark, next to the pool on the foreshore
