Known as the Land of Oz, Australia offers an endless coastline with water that offers heavy and hollow waves and awesome barrels. Oz is a great place to plan a surf trip with high season being in August, though most surfers headed to Australia tend to want to take this journey alone, surfing tours are still available for the faint of heart. News of a swell generally draws large crowds though there is certainly adequate coastline for surfers headed west, east, or south. The popular areas in the east include Kirra and Burleah Heads. Those headed towards the western coast of Australia generally surf in the area of the Margaret River and Rottnest Island. The popular spots in along the southern coast include Bells Beach and Torquay. Anyone headed towards the north coast should beware of crocs and jellyfish that dominate the area in the north.
To get to Australia fly a major airline from the west coast with flights generally going out daily from either Los Angeles, San Francisco or even Honolulu. One of the main cities to fly into is Sydney, Australia with surfing opportunities all along the pristine coastline of the Land of Oz. If you are prepared for a real surfing experience, man up or woman up, and then gear up with your beach shoes, board shorts and shades and head to Australia for some of the best surfing in the world.
