I stayed in St.cloud for a holiday, so i drove to Canova from there. Head for Melbourne Beach. When you see signs for Melbourne, look out for a rocky car park with what looks like the start of a pier. Here's where to park and quickly check the surf.

Start paddling out early if it's high tide, coz you might well cut your feet on the rocks or fall down the steep shelf. It's quite a steep wave so angled take-offs are useful.
Watch out the for the locals though, turn a blind eye to drop ins if you don't want a slap. It's like a surfer's ghetto here so just be careful.
Apart from that, it's a nice fast wave which is good fun. It often attracts impressive surfers so prepared to be amazed when there's a storm.
