Located on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia, Lorne Beach is the beach inside of the cove most well known for the point. This beach break can get decent, and breaks over a sandy bottom. The waves here are straightforward to surf and break for up to 100 meters providing sections for turns and airs.
What are the best surf conditions for Lorne Beach?
Gets good from chest high to overhead. We recommend riding a longboard or shortboard here. Lorne Beach will be an option for all level of surfers depending on the size. The surf here is somewhat consistent (5/10) and can get pretty crowded (8/10). The best swells are from the South, and a bit peaky. The best winds are from the West and the beachie works on all tides.
We recommend wearing a 3/2 wetsuit in the summer when the warmest water temperature hits 16 degrees. In the winter we recommend wearing a 4/3 wetsuit with temps dropping to 12 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
