 Access

Drive on the road next to the lifesavers club and go right at the end and you will come onto a beach. You will need a boat to get out to lancelin island. After getting all setup on the island you are ready to go and surf. You will have to stop the boat about 50m away from the surf and paddle the rest. But becareful because there are sharks always lurking around.

 Additional Information

lancilin Island has a small right on small swells and a left that breaks accross the back of the island on bigger swells this wave can handle large swells (upto 12'and bigger according to locals) this wave is no good for lidders (too fast). Edward Is is the Island in the south of the bay and it has a right (eddies) just to the north of it. hole in the wall is smack in the middle of the bay to the south of the reef and is a right (best wave in lano) south passage is to the north of the same reef and is a left. back beach (south of eddies) is a beach break. The only waves suitable for lidders is Back beach and eddies all the others you will get caught behind in the soup.

My number one tip is when you finish the wave or have bailed out swim back to your boat as fast as you can and dont worry about your board because there are to many sharks. so get your board once your back on the boat.

Atmosphere

Waiting for the next set can be scary becasue of the shark infested water, but once on the wave it is really fun.

picture discrepancy - the waves in the picture and on the map are of Eddie's Island. Lano Island has a right and two lefts. Mainly a left due west of the Island which is the most surfed and well known. Holding waves up to around 10-12ft. The right is due south west and the 2nd left which is fickle to the north/northeast. Maybe Lano is one of the last remaining quiet areas of the extended metro zone

don't bother - so many times u do the dawny to lancelin and the wind is already south. after first paddeling to the island (sharks!) u still have an long paddle out to the break and the current pulls u into a shallow reef shelf. last time i went there some guy had just broken his ribs or something and was lying on the beach half unconcious and his mate was trying to get someone with a boat to take him ashore. crowded when good anyway. wouldn't bother
