Sometimes it’s good to take our eyes off the devices and remind ourselves how spectacular nature can be. This is one of those places where if you don’t come check these natural creations out, they might be gone! It’s always been a family goal to come here so when we headed to Melbourne, this was definitely on our to-go list. It’s a bit of a drive from Melbourne CBD but worth every minute. Cross your fingers for good weather, which makes this place even better. Got some extra time? Take the coastal drive down (it’s longer but the view is pretty awesome).
When you arrive, unleash your inner tourist and go nuts with the camera. Or be sentimental and just stare at them whilst the waves crash against their base. Either way, you’ll be blown away by how amazing nature can be. Take your mum, your dad, your friends, your relatives – everyone.
Packing List: Surftech ThumbDrive HD-E Surfboard: This is the first SUP I purchased, and I’m very pleased with it. It’s stable enough for me but has a “sporty”, responsive feel. So far, I’ve used it on three different lakes, from flat water to extremely choppy water. On a scale of 1-5, 1 being poor and 5 being excellent, I’d give it a 3.5 for stability, 4 for maneuverability, and 4 for speed. I’ve added a deck bag and some tie downs, and still have room to spare. I highly recommend this board, it’s a very good value, fun to use, and beautiful.
O’Neill Wetsuits Mens 4/3 mm Epic Full Suit: Though I tried several wetsuits at surfshops to know my size and so should you…because I didn’t trust their size scales. I have a belly so I wanted to make sure that I can move around and be able to breathe. My only concern was that I got a small hole somewhere in the back for some reason but it comes with a year warranty so you can send it to be patched-up easily. I haven’t tried it in really cold waters here in So Cal just in the Sea of Cortes and it wasn’t too warm to be in it.
