Surfing

Some of Australia's best surfing beaches are a quick drive from the heart of Perth and in summer or winter, whether its reefs, points or beach-breaks there is sure to be at least one surf spot that is cranking! With conditions throughout summer favourable for surfing, body boarding, windsurfing or kite surfing the choices in Perth are endless.

For experienced surfers looking for that incredible wave head out to Rottnest Island. Trigg Beach has some point breaks well worth a look and Swanbourne Beach is a great spot for experienced surfers looking for some beach breaks. With long stretches of flat water on the inside and several reef breaks at the back, Lancelin, north of Perth, is a rare windsurfing gem.
