Half man/boy from Canada« on: February 21 2008 01:02:00 »
Hey all I'll try not to be a wanker but I have some stupid questions. OK, I love the ocean and would love to learn to surf where its done best, in Australia. I'm thinking Queensland but what do I know. I would prefer sand breaks so I don't rip myself a new one when learning. Also not having a shark biting my tadger would make me happy, so are there any relatively shark free areas in Ozz land? Any answers are appreciated, Thank You. P.S. When drunk I may party naked. Don't hate me because I'm Canadian and pale, I just want learn to ride the sea.

Go Queensland or West Aussie mate and you wont go far wrong. In Queensland try the goldcoast or sunshine coast and in Western Australia if your here in autumn or winter then the local beach breaks will suffice for a beginner (leightons beach, dingoes, cove, seconds are good spots - these are all just south of Cottesloe Beach) You mite think your better off on a beach break and is ok if its tiny but a small reef break would be better for a beginner. If you've never surfed b4 would recommend a surf school for a week or so just to get the feel of it.
Come on down and njoy yourself, God LuK :)

As far as the sharks go, well there's sharks everywhere mate but dont worry bout em.
Just don't surf by yourself, dawn or dusk, murky water near seal colonies or deep dropoff's and your cool - still sharks everywhere but they're the trouble spots.
If your not sure about a spot, ask the locals if its "sharky"
If you come to Perth post on this site and I'll pick u up and take you down for a surf.
