Australia's South West Coast
One of the most consistent spots in the area that offers short rides that can be suitable for beginners when the waves are small. However, this spot is best left to more experienced surfers during big swells as the waves here dump quickly on the shallow sandbar making catching green waves a challenge for beginners. So if you're learning to surf, stick to catching whitewater waves when the surf is big.
Fast breaking, steep waves that dump mainly as close outs with the odd left and right. The sandbar here is normally flat and attached to the beach, suitable for catching whitewater waves - watch out for rips, especially in the northern corner near the rock groyne and the rocks to the south.
Pyramids Beach does get crowded here in summer and on weekends and potentially dangerous when the surf is big, when heading to the beaches further south between here and Bunbury for fewer crowds and often smaller waves is an option.

The car park is located at the northern end of the beach.
Patrolled from early October until the end of March on weekends and public holidays - always swim between the red and yellow flags.
Beginners & kids are best to surf at beaches when Lifeguards are on patrol or with a friend who has decades of surfing experience.
Located at the surf club towards the southern end of the beach.
Head north over the bridge to Wannarup where a couple of cafes are located at the marina on the waterfront. A wider range of food and shops, including several surf shops can be found further north at Mandurah.
