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 =)

Shame. You suck. - I was referred to this site by a friend who has a genuine interest in catching good waves. Why do you ruin it for other people with your ignorant and unnecessary commentary?Suggestion: use your time more wisely. Learn how to put on a wetsuit.
