Needs a big SE swell, but waves are usually very clean. Usually not very good. Semi-permanent right in front of swimming pool. Only any good on high tide. A big easterly swell can rip up the beach and leave R&L peaks for a few days. Easterly also brings seaweed / rubbish and Lorne Point would probably be breaking too. Usually crowds will be kids & old guys. No hassles if you are competent.
For Local kids, summer tourists and the truly desperate. Very occasionally gets great banks. As swell gets bigger, breaks further and further north along the beach. Can get a bit crowded.
Good place to learn if it is small (most of the time). Very safe. Good but a bit overrated.

- Buddy Ten Foot barrels at lorne are about as likely as the queen of england shooting a porno. Don't kid yourself if lorne was 10 foot than it would have been closing out along the whole beach (lorne holds 6 foot max) and bells, cath rock and winki would be smoking. Why surf at lorne?
