fun waves most the time, if perth is good then back beach will be better, definatly worth the drive to get a bit less crowded waves. easier access than the reefs of the area
get in early before the seabreaze which is well known among windsurfers from all round the world. beware of the thieves in the car park!! its a long uncomfortable ride back to perth in your wetty, trust me!!
many good surfs had here, and dont forget to go to the endeavour hotel after the surf for a beer and a crayfish. many fun times to be had during the ocean classic windsurfing competition, or head off road with you 4x4 or motor bike in the huge drifting dunes or explore many tracks to further surf/fishing/tourist spots north towards cervantes, including the world famous pinnicle desert!! fun place all round! just take yer rubbish with ya!!!!!!>:-(

Quality, but full of twats - Lano is quite regularly a good surf spot, regardless of conditions. I've been there for great 5-6ft perfect barrels on offshore wind, and also there for choppy spew days, all blown out. Either way, it's a good place to get in the water.
To all the posers talking tough: Grow the fuck up and pull your heads in. Go out and enjoy the ocean...don't taint it with your macho bullshit.
To the locals: Respect traveling surfers, even those of us from Perth. Without Perth your town wouldn't survive. We provide almost everything for you. At least show enough respect to let us peacefully surf alongside you.
Everyone needs to chill out and stop trying be hard cunts...because you're not. The only hard cunts that go into Lancelin are the SASR lads, and they don't gob on about it.

Beautiful place Lancelin - I love Lancelin. Wasn't a surfer last time I was there though.. will hopefully get to pop up this weekend and give a bit more feedback. Those previous comments to me kill the surfing spirit, its meant to be chilled and fun and any comments on this place should follow the same vibe aye... or give some surf feedback on the place =)
