    Surfrider Foundation Australia is actively protesting against a possible Salmon Farm that will negatively impact the quality of the Martha Lavinia surf break on King Island.

Perfect A-frame waves are formed by swell wrapping around both sides of the island and meeting up again on the north coast over Marthas pristine white sand banks. This wave park has been voted one of the top 10 surf breaks in Australia and is frequented by pro surfers when in the region for the Bells Easter contest.
