Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
Victoria is the southern extent of the Australian mainland, hemmed in by the angry waters of Bass Strait and the Tasman Sea, but perfectly situated to receive the mountainous swells from the Southern Ocean. The Great Ocean Rd twists torturously atop cliffs overlooking an eroded coast of limestone cliffs, sea stacks and caves, where a plethora of beach, reef and pointbreaks unload in a pristine and uncrowded environment. Since the early 60?s, Torquay and Bells Beach have become a surfing epicentre, being home to leading surfwear manufacturers, Quiksilver and Rip Curl, plus the site of the longest running contest and the only Surfing Recreation Reserve on the planet. Victoria has many other quality surfing locations like Wilsons Promontory, Philip Island and the Mornington Peninsula, but it is the Great Ocean Road that is the focus of attention. This 340km (210mi) scenic drive W of Melbourne, is a surfers dream as it passes the many right point breaks that line both sides of Cape Otway.
