If you're going surfing WA, its not hard to find good surf
largest state in Australia, with 12889km of coastline...so as
you can imagine, there's going to be plenty of waves.
The capital city , Perth, just happens to be the most remote capital in
the world, and the total population of WA is only just over 2 million
people.....so yes...there's lots of opportunity for uncrowded surf!
NOT, however, in the Perth metro area.
Perth is rumoured to have the most surfers per capita of any city in
the world...why is not a mystery...the state surfing association runs
excellent programs for schools, as part of their school curriculum, so
most kids get the opportunity to say "they surf".
Having said that..what I have to tell you is that the surf in the Perth
Metro area is very ordinary ... which is why the surf is never as
crowded as the stats might suggest...because many "wannabe" surfers
simply give up before they get to explore the more remote beaches of
our coast, where all the great surf spots are to be found!
Big waves, offshore reef surfing, excellent beach breaks...all there
for the taking...you just need to know where to go...
