While South-West WA scored some big swell, there were also some perfect waves to be had on the Surf Coast in Vicco last weekend. Fathers were given one of the best presents they could ask for on Sunday afternoon the 2nd of September. The Surf Coast delivered some of the best waves all year.

Clean 3-4ft conditions greeted surfers on Saturday morning. Some great waves were had on all the reefs on the early low tide pushing in. Bird Rock, Winki and Boobs were the pick. The beachies were pumping too on the higher tide through the middle of the day. Fairhaven was the pick of the beach breaks. There were quite a few banks around, but not many people knew where they were as there has been no swell.

The tide dropped out in the evening on Saturday and there were some sick waves on the reefs again just before dark.

Conditions were similar on Sunday morning. Actually the swell straightened slightly making for some even better waves. As per on Saturday all the reefs were pumping on the low tide in the morning and then the beachies were fun around lunchtime.

EP at Philip Island had some great waves and south of Torquay there were some sick waves along the Great Ocean Road particularly at a certain whale watching beach near Warrnambool.

On Sunday afternoon the swell rose substantially. Some solid six foot plus sets started pulsing through at Bells and Winki after 4pm. The swell had a really Southerly bend in it, so Winki was breaking wide and fast. Bells looked like thought it was picking up slightly more swell than Winki as the tide drained out just before dark.

Large crowds blanketed the ocean at all the reefs during the evening glass-off. The lack of waves around here this year has sadly made for a more aggressive vibe in the line-up. There were too many drop-ins.

At Winki Nathan Edwards scored a few big barrels down the end and Mick Ray grabbed a couple of Fathers Day bombs.

Early on Monday morning there were still a few waves to be had, but by mid morning the onshore was into it and it was all over.
