Atmosphere

Carrum Beach and Patterson River produce 3-4ft sloppy waves during strong westerly winds, which mostly occur during Spring.
The Patterson River Motor Boat Club has a web cam, which can be used to see the conditions.

Boaties tend to not go out when it is suitable for surfing, making it ideal, however Patterson River is a busy waterway, so make sure you are aware of your surroundings.
