Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
While the Great Ocean Road draws most surfers? attention, there is much more to the Victorian surf scene than meets the eye. If wave-riders from Melbourne usually go west, it's because dominant SW winds are offshore there. What the East Coast lacks in quality, it gains in quantity with spots like Gunnamatta on the Mornington Peninsula or Woolamai on Phillip Island, rarely going flat. The indented coastline allows for a few offshore spots when the SW?ers are blowing, producing some quality rights in stormy winter conditions. Portsea is only 91km (57mi) from the capital and reportedly a surfing venue since the ?30s. In Dec ?67, Cheviot Beach near Portsea made national headline news when Prime Minister Harold Holt either drowned or got taken by a shark in the surf.
