Lancelin South Passage (WA, Australia)
South Passage is a wave riding spot with very similar conditions to “Main Break” located at Lancelin.
The waves tend to be longer and less punchy here.
South Passage is a pretty popular amongst the windsurfers and kiters and can get quite busy on weekends (but barely anyone mid-week).
The wind tends to be mostly cross-off-shore from the SW to S (left side).
The break isn’t huge but you can generally get 2 – 3 bottom turns / off-lip jumping in a run.
Best Time To Visit
The best time for wave sailing at Lancelin is November and March where there is still a likelihood of swell combined with reasonably reliable winds. However you may get the odd swell roll-in during December to February providing 2 – 3 m waves which is the main windy season.
For more reliable wave sailing during summer look at Gero, Gnarloo and Margaret River down south.
Access & Launching
The launch area for the South Passage is north of the Lancelin jetty.
If you have a 4wd you can drive along the beach however avoid driving on soft sand because you can get bogged.
If you don’t have a 4wd there is a good car park near the jetty and it is just a few mins walk with your gear to the beach.
Be aware of the reef lurking below and blue bottle jelly fish that frequent the are during summer.
Sharks and not generally an issue here however you may see a few dolphins and seals.
Also be aware of stationary boats and anchorages in this area.
