MARGARET RIVER - WESTERN AUSTRALIA

The left at Margaret River is a world class wave that gets big and heavy and a right hand wave that can punish the naive. This place has the goods for both goofy and natural footers. It has a heavy looking drop and long wall that can be intimidating. The wave then pitches to line up one of the fastest turns you will ever do along a solid face, even when it's onshore and maybe through to a pit on the inside section.

The right-hander at Margaret River can be seen from the car park if its working properly. It gets pretty heavy and unforgiving to those caught inside, so dont ride too close to the reef on the inside. Keep cutting back into the white water, riding it along the edge of the reef and you'll score a wave that runs for a couple of hundred meters.
