The beginning of winter! If you surf, everything is in alignment. The tides are perfect for my favourite waves, those powerful groundswells from the deep Indian Ocean are pulsing, the crisp offshore winds are consistently grooming the sea-state and we still have those picture-perfect bluebird days making our coastline look like a meticulously curated Instagram profile. Winter is also adventure time for me and it’s when I’m most likely to drop tools and head further south or north hunting waves. Apart from everything amazing about the Margaret River region the reason I live here is because we’re positioned in the most convenient location to explore the rest of Western Australia from, and when it’s time to come home I’m always excited to walk in the front door!
