Waitpinga is a locality in South Australia, about 10 km southwest of the city of Victor Harbor. At the 2006 census, Waitpinga had a population of 165. Waitpinga is a popular surfing and fishing beach, good for salmon and mullet and characterised by its reddish sand. It is an exposed beach that has a consistent surf and the best surfing this close to Adelaide. It is also one of the most dangerous beaches for surfers or swimmers without experience in rough conditions. Swimmers can easily become trapped in rips and rough seas and there is no life saving service at this beach. There are rough waves, powerful rips and sharks who come to feed on the salmon and mullet. A nearby beach popular with surfers and tourists is Parsons Beach, on the opposite side of the Waitpinga headland. Waitpinga river also exits on Waitpinga Beach. The name is of Aboriginal origin, meaning home of the winds.
