Western Australia, Perth
Mullaloo Beach is a popular beach and like many of the beach breaks around Perth, the waves here often break quickly, dumping over shallow sandbars. When the waves are dumping, beginners are best to stick to the whitewater, as attempting to catch the steep green waves here will often lead to nosedives. During small surf days however (which is common) and around high tide, the waves break more slowly, and are less steep, making for good conditions for learning to catch green waves and turning along the wave face.
When the waves are big, fast breaking rights and lefts can be found along the beach, with a lot of dumping close outs too. Head south of the surf club for smaller waves. On small surf days, the waves roll softly over the sandbars and can be really fun for beginner surfers. Stick to the attached sandbars that a free from other surfers, avoiding the rips.
