For the vis­it­ing Gold Coast­ers feel­ing a lit­tle home­sick, Port­land is one of the most de­sir­able surf­ing des­ti­na­tions on the Great Ocean Road fea­tur­ing an ar­ray of breaks for be­gin­ners through to crusty veter­ans. It’s true - these wa­ters are not your 25-de­gree clear blue oceans of the Gold Coast, this mighty south­ern ocean has some bite but, the re­wards are worth­while. Peo­ple chas­ing a fun right point break should con­sider Crum­pets (on the south east side of town) or the no­to­ri­ous Blac­knose Point, which pro­duces long deep rides which are be­lieved to be the long­est waves in Vic­to­ria and rec­om­mended for ex­pe­ri­enced surfers. For a more gen­tle ap­proach en­joy the sur­rounds of Bridgey (Cape Bridge­wa­ter) – you just might be rid­ing in with one of the no­to­ri­ous surf­ing seals!
