Surfing Port Macquarie 18th September 2012

One thing Port Macqaurie is not short of is long sandy beaches and waves. Many famous surfers come from there which is always a good litmus for an area with good waves…think Mick Campbell and now young shredder Matt Banting.

There are plenty of breaks in Port and if one of them isn’t working you will find one that is – many options. No need to take cover when the southerlies hit either, Port is pretty protected from the winds and the surfing crowd are mellow and cruisy, there’s something about a relaxed town that filters right through the people who live and surf there, everyone’s got time for a chat before and after they surf – I like it.

One of the greatest things about getting out of town for a wave is surfing breaks on your own – for a 4 1/2 hour drive from Sydney it’s worth it and these are my picks of the best breaks to surf when you get there:

Break Wall: Looks like a good set up, unfortunately it wasn’t working when I was in town – but with the right conditions it would crank. I am definitely coming back just to surf this wave.
Lighthouse Beach: this is a swell magnet, gets swell on the smaller days – especially near Watonga Rocks.
