Surfing in Salmon Hole, Yorke Peninsula, South Australia Australia

Skill level:
Advanced
Wave speed:
Fast
Salmon Hole is another great surfing spot in Yorke Peninsula, close to Innes National Park and the Marion Bay. Marion Bay is the doorstep to some of the best beaches in Australia that host a rich maritime history.

The spot becomes lately very popular among surfers and Yorke Peninsula is now even hosting major surfing competitions, like the Cutloose Coopers Classic, South Australia’s most known surfing event. Because of the size of the breaks here, surfers are advised to hit the waves, only if there is a lifeguard presence.

Even if you are an experienced surfer, you are strongly advised to abide yourself by this rule. Salmon Hole is a long right break of Marion Bay that offers some walkable faces and the occasional barrel on the suck rock. The spot is ideal for right handler practitioners and suitable for medium or experienced surfers only.

Accommodation options and leisure activities are located around the spot, while the Innes National Park gives you a good chance to redefine your touch with nature.
