Perth has the best accomodations and cove that shelters massive south swells from massive trades that usually blow-out those 'Surfer' mag days of flawless blue barrels over plainly seen coral formations.

i come from the mid and i agree that it doesnt crank alot....but we do have alot of burner surfers here. alot of spots (like triggs) would be good waves if they just had more size and power. victor is good...but its not the best. bullies is mad, but try yorks, chi's is a world class wave and pretty sketchy the first time out, further south you can surf robe and beach port wich can get pretty heavy....but if u want massive size, power and no legs (one of the most ahrak infested waters in oz) goto the west coast

adelaide is a funny place, quiet and quirky, u either love it or hate it. mid coast has nice little waves but never has swell. south coast always has swell but shit surf cos no reefs and the sand is always shit as well as the wind. yorkes is 4 hours and has some ok waves, b grade definitely not world class. west coast is as good as anywhere on its day, but it is a windy dry hostile environment. lots of people complain about localism and it exists basically cos anywhere there is good wave there is nothing else so grumpy locals go without a lot for inconsistent windy waves and the eastcoasters who get consistent good waves come and charge the good days thinking it is always good waves. all these calls of world class waves u guys need to get out more

I will be moving to Adelaide for three years. I have been surfing for 15 years now in Portugal. I am not looking for world class waves...just wanted to know if there's a consistent spot small waves or not where I can go surfing before and after going to work. And by the way I quote "Is it possible to rent a place by the beach?" Are there plenty of things to do in Adelaide?
