Local salty surfers and international wax heads have been competing for Victorian breaks since the 1960s, but with so many excellent beaches there’s enough ocean for everyone. Victoria also boasts the longest continuously running surfing competition in the world—the Rip Curl Pro. Wax your board and say “cowabunga dude” as Culture Trip presents the best surfing beaches in the state.

Fairhaven Beach

At six kilometres long Fairhaven Beach is the longest beach on Great Ocean Road. Located west of Aireys Inlet, the beach is patrolled by the Fairhaven Surf Life Saving Club on the eastern end and has numerous breaks. The most popular surfing spots include the mouth of Moggs Creek, The Spot – just left of the Surf Life Saving Club and Spouts Creek. Best conditions are found amidst northerly winds.
