For nearly forty years surfers have travelled across Australia and from around the world to take on the world-class waves of this renowned region. Margaret River’s Surfers Point is home to the Telstra Drug Aware Pro Margaret River, held around March-April.
With over 75 top class surf breaks spread over 130 kilometres of pristine coastline from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin, surfers are absolutely spoiled for choice.
This corner of the Indian Ocean is blessed with some of the cleanest water anywhere and the madding crowds of other surf regions around the world will become just a memory.
Year-round the powerful ground swells generated in the notorious Roaring Forties 1000 kilometres to the south of Cape Leeuwin march north-east and meet with the reefs and beaches of the region. The result is some of the most consistent, spectacular, high-quality surf anywhere on earth. The ocean temperature varies little throughout the year and therefore those hunting the ultimate wave can surf here at any time.
The biggest and most spectacular surf hits the coast in winter and spring, however summer and autumn also offer consistent swells. It is very rare to find the ocean flat for more than a few days, even in summer. There is a wide variety of breaks offering varying difficulty, and a number of small beach breaks that are perfect for inexperienced surfers and novices.
Several surf schools exist in the area and a surf lesson is great fun way to spend a day when visiting the region. To surf the waves of this region is the goal of surfers the world over. Come and experience the ultimate surf safari in the Margaret River region!
