South Coast, WA

In contrast to the arid west coast, the changeable climate of Western Australia’s south coast has produced a wild natural landscape. Great tracts of land are covered in thick eucalyptus forests of enormous centuries-old trees. Its heavily eroded rocky coastline meanders around countless bays and long white beaches. The 800km between Esperance and Augusta host enough quality breaks for a whole lifetime of surfing – yet only a handful are regularly visited by anyone, let alone regularly surfed. Meanwhile Esperance has developed a worldwide windsurfing reputation, yet even here the locals mainly sail alone: the 700km trip from Perth plus less than consistent wind thwart many potential visitors. A real shame, as the Bay of Isles’ pure white sand and crystal-clear turquoise waters are amazing while conditions can be second to none.
