Me and a few mates are looking at doing a South OZ trip at the end of august. looking for any advice on areas/breaks to check out that are a bit off the beaten track and not likely to be super crowded. keen on surfing anything from beaches to point breaks and heavy slabs (on the eski lids)

So recommend away.

Cheers
Marty

That's like asking a squirrel where they store their nuts

Good luck - get your explorers hat on and wander down some west coast tracks and look a the big google map from the sky - you never know what you'll find

Not going to lie, i didn't like my chances lol i have a few places in mind that i wanna check out that are off the beaten track a bit but still thought it wouldn't hurt to see if i could find some loose lipped squirrels haha

South Australia is pretty isolated, think south coast with no one around. It has big noah's and the water can be muddy and cloudy. My advice is to recruit a local. Also a paddle around Glenelg to meet the locals (that is of the noah) variety is also recommended, I only visit in summer but I've been around to Victor Harbour and there are plenty of Sup riders around. Not much wave action and a bit on the chilly/sharky side for me.
That said for a road trip its friggin awesome, clean beaches everywhere, good food, great wineries, lots of nice ladies, great beer, surf shops a plenty, good driving roads.

Yeah the big Noah thing is a concern but at the end of the day, we are trying to chase some uncrowded waves and nothing screams uncrowded like isolated and sharky haha. Any recommendations on must go's for food etc?
