Bells Beach conjures up almost mystical images to the members of the Australian surfing scene. It is a long right-hand point break which just keeps on going. Best conditions can be found with a south-westerly swell and north west wind on mid-high tide. During Easter the normally quiet town of Torquay comes alive as the Bells Beach Easter Classic is held. This event is the world's longest running pro-surfing competition. It attracts the top surfers from around the globe and thousands of spectators.
