RE: QUT or Deakin

Hey dude, I go to Deakin in Waurn Ponds, and Bells is about 20 mins from the campus (I live 10mins from torquay). I dunno what QUT is, but deakin rocks out, and it's a great jumpoff point to get all along the Great Ocean Road, or up to Melbourne. Just one thing, the water is freeeeezing in winter, so bring some money 2 get a good wetty. Only bring your board if you love it, cos there's plenty of places you can buy a cheapie then sell it once you go back. Best surf in Autumn, when the rip curl pro is on...unfortunately everyone else knows this too, so it can get crowded (unless you secret me!). Best thing about Vicco is that you can find a less crowded wave if you're willing to drive up the Ocean Road until you come across one.

Looking for surf spots in Australia ?
