Mallacoota Surf Guide

Mallacoota on the East Coast is an exposed point break that has quite consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Works best in offshore winds from the west northwest with some shelter here from southwest winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the south. It very rarely gets crowded here. Beware of rips and sharks.
