Freshwater Surf Spots
Freshwater affectionately known as Freshie is a narrow beach flanked by the impressive Queenscliff & Harbord headlands which give it a little protection from winds and mellower waves. Longboarders prefer the middle section while shortboarders like the Southern corner where the waves are punchier and hollower. On bigger days, waves close out more often than not at this small beach. When there is a lot of moving water watch out for the rip along the rock pool. Freshie has a very long sand bar and the broken white water on the inside is good for beginners practising their pop-ups. Mid tide and smaller swell on the Northern end can produce a little peelers which are ideal for pushing groms onto their first waves.
