Surfing in Semaphore Beach, Adelaide, South Australia Australia
Adelaide is a popular destination for the lovers of surfing, offering a great number of beaches, suitable for this extreme sport. Semaphore Beach, situated on the northwest side of the city, is one of the most popular ones, providing a good sea breeze all year round.
During winter time, you will only see few surfers on the beach due to the big size waves. The winds are south-west to west and are usually stronger in the afternoons (15-25 kn/27.7-46.3 kph). The currents are a bit strong in the area (3-5 kn/5.5-9.2 kph), so keep an eye on them. The beach is sandy and big and gets crowded during the summer season.
