Bells Beach, Australia


With Bells Beach, it’s not just about the wave; no other spot in Australia has a deeper sense of surfing history. There is an aura of surfing greatness around Bells. Maybe this comes from the raw power of the Southern Ocean pounding sheer limestone cliffs, or maybe it’s because of tales of the early surfers and the wild times that went down at Bells Beach.

Whatever draws surfers there, it is the wave that keeps them coming back. It’s a big, rumbling, point, breaking right over a rock shelf and rocky reef.

When the stormy Southern Ocean swells come rolling in (which is often), Bells turns on long powerful waves with wide open faces. If all three sections are lining up, expect rides over 100m and plenty of room for rail-to-rail carving.
