West Oz is aggro-crowded at any main break. Gotta get off the beaten path. The water IS aqua blue. Constant swell. Spring/Fall are primetime. Winter has many onshore stormy days. Big choice of waves, wildlife, wine, buds, and cool people. Nightlife-Perth rocks. 5 hrs south, Margaret River, super mellow. Waves were more crowded than I had expected, but still fking awsome. A 4x4 helps. Camping is an option.

Erased my comment; too much info for everyone. Cool now? I did mention that its aggro crowded, and localized as all hell. and sharky, and cold.

What's with all this "PHOTOSHOP" stuff?...The only time i ever yelled "photoshop" was when my wife found a pic of me with a hooker on my lap. I've surfed NSW and this is just what it looks like

Plenty of places have turqouise or aquamarine water.Check out the pictures from Bermuda or better still get a plane ticket somewhere exotic and find out for yourself.

Indo is also good for seeing the razor sharp reef in glorious technicolor!

A welsh friend of mine, on his first trip to indo, was blown away by the fact that you could see your feet while sat on your board... and that was before the rainbows of the spray at dawn split by colour down the reef!

I know, it's hard to believe the ocean gets that blue, but down in South WA it does, clearly you've never been and seen
