RE: adelaide surf, SA

yeah,i live in victor harbor,there's heaps of surf spots here and 80km to adelaide,but its now 100km/hr all the way so realistically you can make the southern suburbs of adelaide in about 50 mins.the reason for this is that they built a one way expressway which travels in the direction to adelaide in the morning then its one way back to victor in the arvo.weekends is a different story.in sydney you might have to travel only 20-30 km's and it still takes an hour.

Wat up. Surf around the city is crap. About 5 surfable days a year and they are on-shore stormys!!!
Go 1hour south to victa and there is about 20 km of surfable coastline on the right day. I should know......i lived/surfed there for 17 yrs but moved to Adelaide 2 yrs ago and Im lacking SALT!!!!!

theres heaps of waves around. mid fun but not gonna hurt ya. victor has got waves pretty much every day...not always good but around waits/parsons way there will always be swell. on a big day head to bullies or kings if it aint maxing and you'll score massive waves that will really test ya skills and the size of ya balls....

the sharks aint gonna hurt ya mate...they're everywhere and its just your choice of where you surf as to whether your prone to the attacks or not... the chances are a million to one and around the adelaide area (mid/south coast) you are as safe as anywhere in the world

Look on a map & you will see Port Noarlunga to Moana. (Mid Coast - 30 mins from city)
Good waves there for the novice but doesn't work very often
Middleton & Day Street (via Victor Harbor) on South Coast - 45 min drive OK also.

i went surfing first time in my life you can go to Moana it's about an hour drive from salisbury so will be closer fro the city. waves are not huge but it's still really nice and caravan park is 2 minutes walk.

Adelaide's surf is pretty Average but if you go on a 5 hour drive to the Yorke Peninsula tip youll find some of the best waves in Australia there (Pondalowie, Daly Heads)
