Off the Great Ocean Road in Eastern Victoria you will find a fun beach break set up at Cape Conran. There is a long stretch of sandy beach, and at the Eastern end there is a boat ramp that helps solidify the banks. The waves here can be a little tricky, breaking up to 100 meters, and provide good sections for turns and manoeuvres.
What are the best surf conditions for Cape Conran?
This spot gets good between waist high to overhead. We recommend riding your longboard, shortboard, or step up when the size picks up. Cape Conran can accommodate all levels of surfers, depending of course on size of swell. The beach usually has something to surf (5/10) but can get busy on weekends and holidays (5/10). The best winds for Cape Conran are offshore from the North, however the best tide is dependent on the changeable banks. The best swell direction is from the South.
In summer, the warmest water temperature is 16 degrees in February, so we recommend wearing a 3/2 wetsuit. In winter the water temp drops to around 12 degrees, so it is best to bring a 4/3. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
