I love the waves never get me off of them. Im ok at surfing but i prefer bodyboarding. my fav beaches would be 3-poles near Southport which has a nice right hander breaking over a shallow rocky exposed shelf/reef 150m from the shore. Beach breaks are good too and ive always headed to victor Harbour down near Goolwa, Middleton. Bullies, Chicken Run. I used to go to Horseshoe Bay when i was younger and still do sometimes. Thats the best beach in Aus. Waves like Bondi but no currents.

Never been to NSW beaches but Narabeen is supposed to be good. Bronte looks pretty good aswell. Have to try em out one day.

After Xmas im off to Victor for 2 weeks so ill have a ball!

Lennie cool

Sounds wonderful Lennie, Yeah I prefer bodyboarding compared to surfing. My favourite spots are express and Kitty Miller on Phillip Island. They rock, best surf is on a light easterly wind.

Hey 4 seasons, no doubt Express is one of the top bodyboarding/surfing spots on Phillip Island. Best winds there however are generally NW. Right Point in Cat Bay is the place to go in a east to southeasterly, while Woolies has pretty good waves in an easterly through to the northeast.
As good as Phillip Island is, I'm not a fan of the crowds down there, Mornington Peninsula is my favourite. It's rarely great, but you can have world class beach breaks to yourself, which is more of a rarity on Phillip Island and the west coast. For real waves head down past Cape Otway............

Sorry, I did not explain the wind direction right for Express shocked Thanks Johnny.

Look with the crowds all you have to do is bring an old stocking, put a cricket ball in it and swing it round and round until you have a space to yourself, works everytime, have fun!!!
