Find the take off point, and stay there all day. Dont ride this wave on smaller days, or on higher tides. As the rocks on the point will become a problem.
Try to ride the wave all the way to the beach, then walk up around the point and paddling becomes obsolete
It has a great atmosphere, with mostly locals using the break. Most people know each other out in the water, and everyone is up for a chat.
This is my fav break, being somewhat in experienced, it provides a great learners wave, but everyone can get some nice long rides.

What Tides are surfable at Kennet? - I have a surfing guide to Victoria which saids .5m (or less) low tide is best for Kennet. It is very hard to catch a tide at .5m throughout the year. Is it still surfable on low tides from .5m - 1m or is it flat on those tides?. Been trying to get back here for ages it is one fo my fave spots, your help appreciated.

kennet point - this wave is a heap of fun but needs a bit of sweel to work. there is a really fun fast section of the wave that is my favourite. u can only surf it on low tide cos other wise it is right on the rocks. it can get packed on school holidays and long weekends.and wach out for the knee boarders there gay.
