 Additional Information

Lorne Point is inside Loutit Bay which means it only breaks when the beaches outside reach about 2 meters. It is a Fantastic wave when the swell is up around 4 meters. Also when there is a really strong SW wind it blows up a swell that gets into lorne reallyt good. In summer when there are a lot of Easterly swells they get in really good to, if the wind changes to the west this creates great waves. The best wind is south to West because it is shelterd but a light northely is good too. The piont is split in to by a gap in the rock. normally it only breaks on the first point but on a big eastely or huge southerly swell it can break through the channel.

Atmosphere

Lorne has a fantastic atmosphere. when the waves are really good and there are a lot of people in lorne on holidays there will be about thirty people just standing on the point watching.
When this place is really working there is a fierce local presence.
There are only about 20-30 local surfers in the town! If hassled by a 'local' - ask them where they grew up. No local will give you grief unless you make a prick of yourself, i.e. drop in, act aggressively. Lorne has a laid-back feeling in the water. Any 'locals' giving grief are actually blow ins from somewhere else. Tell them to get lost!

General

Great wave when it is on! Will break from 1ft to 6ft. Amazing setting, best from easly summer to Easter, as the tides are generally lowest. Unfortunately this co-incides with crowds, but usually only beginners or old timers. Pretty easy to get a wave if you are competent. Difficult if not - the locals will get every wave. This is no different to any other spot though... Winter sees more frequent swell, but tides are not so accommodating.

low tide - it does get good in winter, cauz no 1 is there so the guys get low in the parking lot, hence its nick name porn point. so much homosexual oral sex in the parking lot

- 4m!!! I dont think i've seen that in 38 years, good break usually around 6ft on a good day.

- Yeah no doubt this spot rocks when its on it actually very rarely breaks in winter cos the tides dont get low enough so autumn and summer r the best times, also had some epic days here round the time of the AFL grand final. Expect 50 people or more when its on and locals or fat guys on mals getting all the waves, still so rippable and has some great barrel sections when the banks r right which is pretty common if its big enough
