Mike Meyers the owner, also established both Windsurfing Victoria & Kiteboarding Victoria, the peak bodies for these sports.
On the day we visited, we tried our hand at SUP. Wetsuits are provided for those that wish to wear them. Once we were on the beach, a quick lesson and we were in the water. It's a great spot for learners with calm, protected, shallow waters.
After 10 minutes of paddling on our knees, it was time to try the SU part. Up we went, and for some, straight down again. But after a few wobbles, it was surprisingly easy to get balanced and moving. Our instructor was on hand to give plenty of tips and encouragement as we paddled around the Sandringham Boat harbour.
Did you know that a former 83 metre British World War 1 submarine known as J7 has sat in these waters for over 80 years? All you can see these days is its rusting upper hull providing moored boats with protection from winds and waves.
After an hour and a half or so, it was time to head back to the kiosk for a well-deserved coffee and some breakfast. The kiosk serves hot and cold drinks, food and ice creams.
Whilst there, checkout the historic picture gallery showing some great old photos. The Kiosk also features art from the Ricketts Point Painters. Stay tuned for the Flotsam & Jetsam Series V1 display scheduled for April 2017.
Dogs are welcome and in fact the beach here is dog friendly all year round so a great place to bring them for a play and to cool off.
Dress is most definitely casual and shoes are optional.
