Surfing Adelaide and surround area...

Hey everybody.

I'm considering to study in Adelaide for half a year. But before I desire if I should or not, I'd like to hear a bit about the surfing in the area. such as beach/reef breaks, rocks, sharks, sweel height where and when - you name it...
I've surfed in Costa Rica for 6 months so I've tried it before but is defintly not a pro! By the way can I tell you that I'm from Denmark across the globe

Hey mate Adelaide has now much surf close to the city the closest is about 20 mins away but is fickle. lots of oppertunitys for good uncrowded surf if you are willing to to do a few roadies to places like Kangaroo ISland, Yorke penisula, South East or Catus.

If you google map Adelaide and check out the seaford reefs south of Adelaid eon the wwestern side of the peninsular, we get waves which is only 30km drive south of the city.2 to 4 foot but a bit fat and they come through the gap between Kangaroo Island and the next peninsular over.
Have to be the right direction etc, and Winter is better than Summer.
