Surf Lord Howe Island

Lord Howe Island can have good surf conditions all year round. The better seasons for surf however are September through to mid-May.
There are 14 surf breaks to choose from including reef breaks and beach breaks. 
The great thing about Lord Howe is that there are surf breaks the whole way around the island so you can always find somewhere to get a wave.

Most of the surf locations handle swell from 2 to 8 foot. Most of them are offshore and so require help accessing these breaks. We have a boat available and a surf guide to accompany you, or we have kayaks so you can paddle yourself out, depending on which break you choose. If you are staying at Ocean View Apartments the kayaks are included but there is a cost involved in the boat service. We also have hire surfboards ranging from 9ft mals down to a 5’8” fish. 
With limited guests being able to visit the Island at one time, any crowd in the surf is seldom seen. At times you may have it all to yourself!
