Northwest Coast Surfing

About Northwest Coast

Western Australia is the largest state, but it has the lowest population density of any state in Australia and maybe even the world. Travelling to the northwest-facing coast takes the word 'remote' to another level and accordingly most surf spots are uncrowded, with the exception of the world-class lefts at Gnaraloo. The natural habitat is rich and diverse along with the unique wildlife that surrounds it, especially along the 280km (125mi) long Ningaloo Reef. Large numbers of fish, whales, turtles, dugongs and dolphins frequent the reef including the world's largest shark! Get used to sharing the surf with many dangerous species as WA is renowned for having some of the sharkiest waters in the world
