Knights is actually on the Fleurio Peninsula, in Pt Elliot. From Adelaide the simplest way is to take South Road from anywhere and just keep going all the way down South, through Morphet Vale, then take the Victor Harbour turn off. That will take you the remaining 50km's or so to the Victor roundabout. Go left to Pt Elliot (5 Mins), and take a right at The Strand. Take the last right there near the end and follow it up to the car park and there you are!

Week crowdFew surfers
Heavy shorebreak + a wedge = Knights. Prefered by bodyboarders because their boards are harder to break, the rides are generally short and intense, and some of the sections look like landslides. Generally any surfers who attend knights are experienced, are there becuase there's nowhere else worth being, or have brains like their duck-taped single fins and are just as easily seen in any other location intimitating youngsters and punching people in the face. The bodyboarders who frequent it can be divided into two categories: those who are yelling 'GO', and those (Generally young teens) who are being sucked over the falls in terror after being called into closeout sets.
This is the S&M of wave riding.
Good for some sort of a wave very often, but for scoring 'classic Knights', you'll have to be dedicated or lucky. It's very tempremental and can change face completely within the space of half an hour and then back again. Best times of the year are any times with swell and light or WNW round N to NE winds. The main bulk of bodyboarding decent Knights is done during the Winter through Spring period when the sand has built back up in the corner after the seasonal stripping of the beach.

the death of k-bay? - Will Knights ever wedge again? That is the question I had to ask myself after seeing it on the weekend. At the moment the place has more rock than a bukkake fest..
