Hi All,
I'm new to the sport and looking for advice on flatwater and maybe small wave paddling in Warrnambool. Heading down there at Xmas, but don't really know the area.
It looks like there is a couple of river options (Merri Hopkins) and then the beach.
is any of that beach protected?
What would it be like getting from Merri River around to the beach?
Cheers

The hopkins would be good for a paddle, you will get waves at the flume or smaller ones at main beach, main beach will be busy though. I will be down there at xmas too, not taking a sup though.

Cool, thanks. Think I'll just head down and get a feel for it. Would be handy if I could paddle down the Merri and then around to main beach.
still learning so gotta keep it tame!
if it's choppy I might even throw it in the lake so I can take my little kids for a paddle.

Get in touch with Keith from Go Surf - He runs out of Port Fairy, but knows the area well. Also has a great paddle loop, hire and knowledge of the area.
